Technical Theater Career Pathway and Student Publicist Application Workshop

Are you a student technician, stage manager, or designer of any kind? Or do you love to talk, write, and post about theater? Good news! We’re offering a special resumé and application workshop for students interested in our Technical Theater Career Pathway and Student Publicist programs! In this 90-minute workshop, students will get an in-depth look at both programs, learn some best practices for applying, and have their questions answered by former program participants.

Note: Only graduating seniors are eligible for the Technical Theater Career Pathway track, and only students who are part of the Critical Review or Student Liaison programs can apply for Student Publicist. However, any student is welcome to attend this workshop.
