    It is the mission of the MCCA Technical Theatre program to develop the students’talentsfor creation. Technical theatre students will learn stagecraft, scenic, lighting, costume design and construction, along with other skills that will be applied through hands-on work on productions. It is subsequently a mission of the Technical Theatre program to operate the Performing Arts Center as a student-run theatrical space. This requires students to be constantly vigilant in their professionalism, and to maintain the PAC as a professional theatre space both for school productions and for rentals. A student-run theatrical space also requires students to be trained and proficient in all areas of technical art while obtaining mastery in one. All MCCA theatre students are expected to participate in extra-curricular productions as a means of applying the theories and skills taught in class. This program requires participation above and beyond the school day. Students completing this program will be prepared to apply for post-secondary training to further their technical career, as well as to enjoy theatre as a life-long avocation.

    Course Descriptions

    Technical Theatre Design and Production 2 

    Students focus on the design and safe application of basic tools and procedures to create elements of technical theatre, including costumes, lighting, makeup, properties (props), publicity, scenery, and sound. Students develop assessment and problem-solving skills; the ability to connect selected literature to a variety of cultures, history, and other content areas. Public performances may serve as a culmination of specific instructional goals. Students may be required to attend or participate in technical work, rehearsals, and/or performances beyond the school day to support, extend, and assess learning in the classroom.

     

    Technical Theater Design and Production 3

Student designers and technicians assemble a portfolio that showcases a body of work representing artistic growth over time; growing command of theatre skills and techniques in one or more areas; and evidence of significant oral and written analytical and problem-solving skills. Public performances may serve as a culmination of specific instructional goals. Students may be required to attend or participate in technical work, rehearsals, and/or performances beyond the school day to support, extend, and assess learning in the classroom.

Students assemble a portfolio that showcases an extensive body of work representing personal vision and artistic growth over time. Public performances may serve as a culmination of specific instructional goals.
