Webster is a leader in innovative solutions to technical problems, with highly skilled professionals and up-to-date equipment providing scenery for the three performance spaces. The Technical Production program demands operations and scenery of the highest standards. It is within this environment that students learn their craft.
The first year of the program parallels that of Design, to ensure a balance of classwork and practical application.
Students study advanced technical production, welding, materials, theatre management, and theatre building design.
Upper-level students often work in internship programs with other theatres, manufacturers, and designers.
Technical Direction majors learn to solve problems creatively, and how to address the needs of performers and directors.
Technical Direction Program
You will find Webster Technical Directors tackling amazing projects across the country, from scenery creation and motion control on the latest Broadway shows, to the most exciting projects in Las Vegas (and everywhere in-between and beyond).
