Tech Challenge


Theatre technicians won’t want to miss the excitement of our Tech Challenge, a daylong competition where you’ll demonstrate your accuracy, speed, and efficiency — as well as your creativity, ingenuity, and teamwork — while executing common technical theatre tasks.

Teams of between five and seven technicians compete in five challenges, ranging from knot tying, light focus, and prop shift to costume change, sound execution, sewing, and stage management. Not a technician? Don’t worry — you’re welcome to join the fun as a spectator.

The Tech Challenge accommodates up to 30 teams in a five-hour period. Any troupe, troupes, or chapter may register a team until all slots are filled.
