Live Production

Intermediate Level
CTE Pathway | Arts, Media, and Entertainment

Live Production focuses on advancing students from being able to crew a show into students who are able to lead design and productions elements necessary for a successful production. Students learn basic rigging, special effects, USITT safety standards, hardware available and their uses, rope types and knot tying, scale drafting, design elements and budget management. Students additionally are taught the different opportunities available within the Production umbrella and are required to work productions, which allow them to experience jobs more advanced than what is offered in the introduction Production course such as Management, Light Programmers, Engineers, Master Electrician, Properties Master, Master Carpenter, Special Effect Artists, and much more!


In addition, students are required to prepare for and participate in the Performing Arts Department's production/design meetings to ensure that their requirements for the show needs and time-line expectations are being met to the expectation level of the Director and Production Manager.


Note: This class is for students interested in live theatrical positions, not filmed productions.  If you are interested in film production, take the Video Production course instead.
