Design/Tech offers hands-on study of scenic, costume, lighting and audio design to students interested in the backstage world of theatre. Study the art of technical theatre with PGT’s incredible teaching artists in The Play Group Theatre’s fully equipped performing arts complex.
Discover the world of Design and Technical Theatre in PGT's super popular D/T program! Work with PGT's professional designers and technicians to bring the PGT Summer MainStage show from the design phase into the scenic and costume shops and ultimately onto the stage. Paint, build, and sew to create the visual world that the actors move through. D/T students will learn the basics of light and sound design and will work jobs in the tech booth and/or backstage during tech rehearsals and performances.
(Want to be part of the entire play creation process? Come for Playwriting and write the 10 minute play you will design in D/T!)
PGT’s D/T Special Event is a visit from a working designer who will share their process and images of their work (2021 Guest TBA)
Final Showcase: D/T students share their own designs for our Playwriting Students' 10 minute plays! Showcase includes set models, drawings, and more in the PGT Jonah Mac Theatre!
