Interested in getting involved in productions not as a performer? Stop by the Tech Info Table in the lobby outside

Interested in being part of a production but not as a performer? There’s more to theatre than what the audience sees! You can enroll in THEA 0210 A or B as a stage manager or assistant stage manager (requires permission from director), or enroll in THEA 0119 A and create lighting, scenery, and props. Student shows need designers, stage managers and  light and sound board operators.
