We know your type...You hang out at the theatre in your down time. You disassemble things to see how they work and create something else with the parts. The Halloween costumes you design are amazing. At concerts, you look at the lighting trusses and hanging sound systems and wonder how long it took to rig them. A job as a roadie sounds good. You’re a creative, hardworking, problem-solving type who likes working with a team and the challenge of a deadline. Sitting behind a desk, doing the same thing every day for a living, is not your thing.
Metropolitan Community College, in partnership with the Omaha Community Playhouse, offers the Theatre Technology Apprenticeship program (TTAP) that will give you the skills to build a future in the entertainment industry as a theatre technician. It’s not a regular classroom experience. Much of your class time is spent in the shop, learning how to construct properties, scenery, rigging and costumes. You learn about the process of lighting and sound design.
