Technical Theater Workshop

A Day for Theater Makers — Theater Tech Workshop

Saturday, April 6, 2019

10AM to 4PM

NWMAC Office Conference Room

109 S Minnesota Street, Warren MN

Put this on your calendar!

This is a day for theater makers in our region to get together, gain some knowledge, share some knowledge, and meet others with the same goal:  producing quality theater. Cost is $15, which includes the training, materials, and lunch. To register go to EventBrite here or call our front desk at 218-745-6733.

Sessions will include:

  • Set Design and Building
  • Costumes and Wigs
  • Props, Masks and Puppets
  • Social Media/Online ticket sales/Credit Card Acceptance
  • And More—we will be adding other topics, so stay tuned

Who is this workshop intended for?

  • Directors: Learn some tech basics and—perhaps more importantly–how to dialogue with others to create a comprehensive production.
  • Board members: gain insight into the world of “what’s going on behind the scenes.” Also, easy and inexpensive ways to manage staff and volunteers, box office and publicity.  
  • Set Builders and those who would like to become Set Builders:  innovative and practical ways to create theater within a limited budget.
  • Costumers: How to create a costume plot, measure, local area and internet resources, storing and organizing inventory.
  • Volunteers of every aspect of theater:  those who want to step into this world but lack knowledge and confidence.
  • Young/old/seasoned veterans/newcomers:  there will be time to ask questions, give answers and get to know others in our region.

Presenters for the workshop include Philip Hoks, Jane Anderson and Andrea Thibert.
