Technical Theatre Summer Camps

Posted on March 14, 2024

There are evidence-based benefits for student participation in the performing arts. Theatre education has overreaching positive effects on students’ academic, social, and emotional lives. It is equally beneficial for students to explore the world behind the scenes.

Technical theatre includes a broad array of creative design in which technicians use science, math, and engineering skills to support productions. Students who study technical theatre also build transferable skills such as leadership, communication, and collaboration.

CTC’s Summer Lab Program provides opportunities for teens to learn more about the technical and the creative side of theatre. Summer Labs are half-day camps designed for students who are interested in learning more about a variety of aspects of story making and design.
