Have you ever wondered how the magic happens behind the curtain? It’s done by wizards. Kidding! It’s done by the Crew, but they are wizards in a way. At T360 our production crews are open to students regardless of prior experience and whether or not they are a current T360 student. Our students get Broadway-quality training by working with our professional production staff who are currently working in The Industry. Throughout Tech Week (the week prior to Opening Night) students work under the guidance of the T360 staff until they feel comfortable, knowledgeable, and can execute their position with confidence. Many of our students who have trained on T360 backstage crews have gone on to prestigious colleges and professional jobs.
We are one of the only children theatre companies that provides professional backstage training.
At T360 we strive to give our students full-circle theatrical preparation. We believe that by participating backstage a student becomes a well-rounded actor; therefore for every two shows a T360 student is cast in that student must then crew their third show.
FEES: $30 for a currently enrolled T360 student and $60 for an un-enrolled student.
