    We are in the process of building a new school, but I was notified that the auditorium will not be complete until Christmas.  I am forced to teach Theatre Tech from a classroom.  Does anyone have suggestions of DVD programs/Text books or websites you have utilized?

    Perhaps we can better help you if you let us know what topics you typically cover. There is a lot you can do by bringing in certain show and tell type items to class for students to try out. Hopefully you can work with a community partner to take them on a very detailed tour of a near by theatre so they can see things in person.

    There was just recently a discussion about teaching tech without a space.  I think it was this one: theater Production Class the best,

    Just saw this but I have some basic projects in a variety of technical areas created that I use regularly.  If you're still looking for things, shoot me and email and I can share some with you that you're welcome to use if you want.

    I am running into the same issues. Not sure if you've already done so, but can you please email me the information as well?
