A big challenge for our local theaters is finding experienced theatrical technicians: the creators of all that goes on backstage. What audiences remember is the performance and not the work “behind the scenes” -- the costuming, props and sets, welding, painting, lighting and sound, the raising and lowering of the curtains, “flying” the scenery, wardrobe changes (to name a few essential components of stagecraft). Overseeing all of these activities and more -- and keeping everyone safe -- is the stage manager.
Interested in participating in the Program?  All are welcome.

MCTA's Hands-On Technical Theatre Workshops Program, recruits individuals 16 and older to work side by side with experienced technicians prior to and during multiple live theatre performances to learn essential theater operations at various venues throughout Monterey County.
