Opportunities within our club!
Tech workshops are a great way to earn set-build hours and new skills! Each tech workshop focuses on a new area of tech. Tech workshops are NOT mandatory; however, each tech workshop you attend counts for one hour of set build (if you attend three tech workshops, you have earned all your set build hours). Tech workshops are a great opportunity for a student in any area of theatre.
A recent addition to the DDC experience, masterclasses happen a couple times a year. We offer masterclasses on many areas of theatre, including costume design, stage management, and even directing. Masterclasses are led by local and nationwide professionals who interact and lead informative sessions with present club members, leaving room for discussion afterwards. They are a great way to help demonstrate how the skills that a Dexter Drama Club member learns can be used in a real world profession!
Bonding events are optional events where the cast, crew, and pit of a production can have fun and get to know each other better! They are typically after rehearsals or on weekends and can be anything from movie nights in the CPA to museum visits! They are a great opportunity for people from different areas of theater to connect with one another in a fun, stress-free environment.
Set Builds are held every Saturday (see calendar) throughout the process of a show. The full company of a show (minus the pit) is required to do three hours set build every show they participate in. Set Build is not only mandatory, but it is a great chance to learn more about set design, scene shop etiquette, stage painting, and more.
