Theatre Technical Team 

Congratulations on deciding to apply for a position on the Tech team.

Our productions cannot be done without a solid team.

Being a part of Thoreau Theatre is a great experience. It is also, however, a serious time commitment. All students are expected to attend all rehearsals they are called for without exception. Any student unwilling to dedicate the time for rehearsals or unable to attend them regularly should not apply.

Application Requirements--turned in no later than Friday, March 18

  • PAPERWORK: Bring your completed Tech Team form to the Blackbox-C-107. Make sure you fill out BOTH The 'Tech Team Form' and the 'Conflict Calendar'.

  • PRESENTATION: Prepare a paper about what position you think you would be a good fit for you

    • Include the reasons why you would be good for this job (see the needed qualities below for each position)

    • Include work or examples of positions you’ve held before that would prepare you for this job.

 

 

Please keep in mind... not everyone who interviews will be assigned a tech job.

We are lo​oking for responsible and reliable students who are organized and able to work independently.

Each position will have a different time commitment. For example the marketing team might meet during Eagle Time 2 months prior to get everything done and make a plan, where as the stage crew will begin attending mid-May.

Most tech jobs need previous training/experience. Please consider taking Tech Theatre class or

Advanced Theatre class for the FCPS county approved training.

Thank you for your understanding.

Jobs will be posted no later than Monday, March 21st
