Tech Camps 2020


 

6th through 12th Grades

Theatrical Production Design Camps

 

 

 

 

Directed by Jenn Monk-Reising

Ever wonder what happens to make all the magic of a set, props, costumes, lighting and sound come to life for a main stage performance? Be it Taylor Swift’s latest World Tour or Ann Arbor’s own YPT, it all starts with a spark of an idea, some inspiration and a creative vision!

Have you ever sat in the audience of a Broadway show or a Disney production and wondered how they made that? Did that? Or thought of that!?!  Come join us for a week of magic making and discover how to bring a theatrical production to life!

Explore the elements of technical theater combined with practical hands-on experience in designing for the stage, construction, scenic design and stage rigging. Each camper will learn script analysis techniques necessary to glean visual information required for design.

 

Design Intensive

In this one-week intensive design camp, while working in a socially-distanced collective studio, we will learn what a theatrical artist is, the designer’s function in the theatre, elements of design, and key design principles. Through exciting hands-on projects, we will explore understanding color, various design approaches and how to understand the space you are working in. The week culminates in a final presentation of each camper’s design for a show of their choosing. Final presentations will be shared with family and friends.
