A Certificate of Achievement in Technical Theatre is recommended for those considering a professional career in the entertainment industry or theatre. A certificate would demonstrate support and knowledge for those who are attempting to gain entry-level employment as a Theatre Technician, Theatrical Stage Employee, Moving Picture Technician, Entertainment Artist, or in Allied Crafts.
Upon completion of the required courses with at least a “C” grade or better in each course, the student will be awarded a Certificate of Achievement, Technical Theatre.
After meeting with industry advisory committee which included several high schools that indicated there would be a demand for this certificate and they would be interested in articulation and there is a need for this program in the area, we do expect to have interest in the program. We expect that enrollment will grow in the upcoming years.
Initially we expect 20-40 annual enrollments with 10-15 completers of the program
· Students will demonstrate competence in the technical, design, and/or acting aspects of theatrical productions.
· Students will be able to describe, analyze, interpret, and evaluate dramatic literature and theatrical productions.

This 18 unit Certificate of Achievement will require students to complete 6 three unit Theater courses. This certificate provides students with instruction to various areas of technical theater in support of theater production.
