La Jolla Playhouse Tech Theatre Summer Intensive for Theatre Educators

Join the professionals from the Tony Award winning La Jolla Playhouse for a fun filled and action packed three-day professional learning intensive in technical theatre. This opportunity offers hands-on activities for the new theatre teacher who needs additional support to safely teach tech theatre as a course or the veteran theatre teacher who wants to reacquaint themselves with tech theatre best practices. Your three day experience will be facilitated by veteran high school Theatre teachers and La Jolla Playhouse Teaching Artists, Julie Benitez and Kirsten Giard–experienced educators with nearly 60 years of teaching combined. You will also interact with professional artists and technicians working on La Jolla Playhouse productions.

Your experience will include:

  • Hands on experiences in all elements of technical theatre
  • Demonstrations and conversations with La Jolla Playhouse professionals
  • Guidance on lesson planning and curriculum development
  • Daily lunches, and two dinners
  • Opportunity to observe the tech process for a La Jolla Playhouse show
  • A ticket to a La Jolla Playhouse production
