Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr G. McLarin

Level 2 Performing Arts Technology - The Production

Participation in Performing Art Technology enable students to gain intricate knowledge of the behind the scenes processes within the Performing Arts. These skills lead to real life careers in Stage Management, Music Production, Lighting and Sound. Students will also gain skills in collaboration, as well as have the opportunity to work with real industry professionals, in a context that is reflective of a true industry environment.

Semester A in Performing Arts Technology will be focussed on the school production. What you see on stage is more than just acting, it is costume and make-up design, set design, props management, Lighting and Sound engineers at work, as well as a whole team of people working behind the scenes to get us to a point where everything flows smoothly on stage. In Level 2, you will have a greater input into the overall design, as well as taking a lead role in making sure the final product is what the vision outlined.

Term One will be spent examining the script for the production, and then beginning the design and consultation process. This is the term to plan everything out, so that the run into the production is as smooth as possible! You will choose Two or Three standards from the list below that will determine what teams you are a part of.

Term 2: Production is normally sometime around Week 8, so it's all hands on deck to get things ready. Sets need to be built, Costumes sourced and made, make-up designs finalised, and props to gather. It will be over in a flash, so make the most of it while it lasts!

N.B. You will not complete every Standard that is listed in this description. You will choose up to 12 credits worth of standards that you want to focus on.
