Tech Track

The Makings of a Production

Tech Track runs alongside the teen acting ensemble to create a full company of theatre makers. Students will learn about all aspects of theatre production, from costume and set design to marketing and lighting design through a variety of hands on projects. Students will collaborate with the acting ensemble to design, build and produce Irondale Young Company’s final performance.

Tech Track is project based and sessions will mainly take place on Wednesdays 4:30-6:30 pm, although there will be additional optional work experience sessions. Tech Track starts in October 2019, (exact dates TBA) with an introductory session before launching into a unit based around Irondale Ensemble’s production of Brecht’s Galileo. Project Units will be 3-5 weeks, and will cover lighting, sound, drafting and model building, scene painting, costume design, and production management. Students will complete the year by taking on a variety of production and design roles around Young Company’s summer show.
