Technical Theatre Training

05:30 pm to 08:30 pm
Buskirk-Chumley Theater

Want to learn more about Technical Theater? Interested in putting on events but not clear on the technical terminology you’ll need? Looking to be more involved at the BCT as a union stagehand? The Buskirk-Chumley Theater is opening its free Technical Theatre Training sessions for I.A.T.S.E 618 stage hands to the general public. These three-part sessions are available to any skill and experience level. Each session will follow the following format:

5:30-6:30pm: Introduction to Technical Theatre
An introduction to terminology, equipment, and the great capacity they provide to transform a performance space. This section is particularly suited to individuals and groups interested in renting the Theater and/or presenting events, members of the arts community looking to increase their general field knowledge, and anyone who has ever been curious about the backstage functions of a performance space.

6:30-7:00pm: Discussion Topic
Focusing on a different topic each time, we will have a guest from the technical theater community lead a discussion about their area of expertise. Guest Speaker for this session: E.J. Ernsberger, First Electrician-Lighting with the IU Auditorium.

7:00-8:30pm: Lighting and Audio Workshop
These sessions provide opportunities to delve into practical, hands-on work with Lighting and Audio equipment as well as some simple staging and theater operations. We will work together to set up aspects of a different mock BCT event for each session.

If you have questions about the training session’s content, please contact Skylar Delk, assistant technical director, at [email protected]
