StageCraft is a new pilot program from SPARC that focuses on building a community for students interested in all aspects of technical theatre, but especially backstage work. As members of the StageCraft, students will meet with professional Designers and Technicians once a week to learn about the various roles of a crew member. Participants will also learn practical skills related to shop safety, set construction, lighting design and hanging, sound design, stage management, and much more!  The program will culminate with the StageCraft members putting their learning into action as production crew for SPARC performances.  Roles will be assigned based on interest, skill set, and experience. Along with the weekly meetings listed above we ask that families tentatively put the following SPARC performances in their calendars. In addition to the programs listed below, other events that have crew opportunities may pop up throughout the school year.

  • Winter Production: Tech Rehearsals February 10-16; Performances Feb 17-19 and Feb 24-26
  • Spectrum: Tech Rehearsals March 5-9; Performances March 10-12
  • Showstoppers: Tech Rehearsal March 23; Performances March 24 & 25

Participants will be asked to sign a safety waiver and agree to follow all guidelines set in place by the instructors.
