Student tech crew members have the opportunity to use a level of technology that allows for tremendous flexibility and creativity in their designs. Multiple lighting control systems enable our lighting design students to master professional techniques used in theaters worldwide. Allen & Heath and Mackie sound systems provide our sound design students with the ability to create any soundscape, sound effect, or score they can imagine.
Under the guidance of our theater's technical director, JCHS students design and run a variety of events, from musicals to dramas to play festivals. They acquire experience ranging from basic carpentry skills necessary to construct sets to a fundamental understanding of lighting and sound systems, basic color theory and the elements of good sound design. The expertise they gain in our theater tech program serves them as they move on to technical production opportunities in college and commercial arenas.
