Theatre Tech Summer Programs

Theatre Tech Summer Programs Prepare Students for Careers

This summer the Theatre Tech Department was hard at work finding new ways to create opportunities for our students to find positions working as stage technicians in the field, including establishing a partnership with the IATSE Local 59, with whom we have created a two part internship program.

Through this program, students will train with union personnel on the stages at High Tech High School to learn the essential skills necessary to work on any stage. Upon completion of the in-school training, students will be given the opportunity to work alongside professionals on productions all around New Jersey.

Teaming up with our Video, Broadcasting, and Performing Arts Departments, we will document these training sessions, as well as behind the scenes footage from all of the performances that our students take part in. This will culminate in a video production that will display for everyone the amount of time and dedication that goes into a show, from the standpoint of the crew tasked with making the technical portions of the show run smoothly.

This production will be a one of a kind, behind the curtain documentary; filmed, narrated by, and starring High Tech High School students.
