Description provided by the program

Our program offers a cross training through the areas of technology. Our students are trained in costume, but also get experience in lighting, scenery, sound, or other areas. Our students get to assistant design usually in their first year and are able to design usually before their Senior year. Main stage shows are available for student design. Our placement with our design/technical students has been at 100% for the last 2 years.
