Design Tech Track is a mutli-disciplinary, hands-on experience which introduces students to the basics of set design and construction, costuming, prop making and technical theatre, including sound and lighting. Students will work with PGT’s professional designers and technicians, moving through the design phase and into the execution of all aspects of production work for PGT’s MainStage season.
Design/Tech students will have the opportunity to work on the crew of a PGT MainStage show during tech week and performances. Possible positions include Light Board Operator, Sound Effects Operator, Dresser, Running Crew and Stage Manager.
As part of the MainStage program, Design/Tech Track students work closely with both actors and the PGT artistic staff.
