 Theatre Performance Production

​​​​​​​​​As students develop and progress through the rigor of the technical, emotional and social elements of theatre, CAPA Theatre Performance Production Pathway (technical theatre) aims to provide students with an opportunity to participate in multiple components of a theatrical production: design and application, lights, sound, set, costumes, properties and management. Their training will lay the pre-professional groundwork that will provide them with the skills necessary to continue their artistic pursuits at prestigious universities and conservatories.
