Technical theatre has the coolest makerspace in town

The Technical Theatre Conservatory is a hands-on class that covers work in lighting, sound, stage management, costume design, set design and other areas of theatre production. Plus, we have a cool makerspace with power tools. 

Students with strong interests in media, theatre, music or dance will benefit from an understanding of the performing arts from this perspective. Technical Theatre Conservatory students provide support for a variety of Mayfield Senior School events and productions and utilize a variety of current technologies in light and sound production.

In this Conservatory, students have the opportunity to immerse themselves behind the scenes in learning the technology and design behind a production.

Advanced students have the opportunity to not only operate the technology for each production, but also to participate in the design of each performance or event. Students with a strong interest in audio/visual digital recording and editing, computers, sound, and lighting design will quickly become integral parts of every production at Mayfield Senior School, from the Spring Dance Concert to Music in May, the Fall play, and every school Assembly and Mass.
