Tech Challenge

The goal of this event is to provide an opportunity for theatre student to exhibit their abilities in the technical production environment. Production skills and collaboration are required to efficiently accomplish each task.


Although the 2021 event may look a little different, we wanted to make sure that we had an event organized for our amazing Technical Students across the state.

Teams

Each school may send one team composed of four members with at least one representative of each gender. A team must be comprised of only thespians from one school.

Evaluation

Each team may send in ONE video per event that represents the team’s best efforts. Each video must contain the phrase “Your time starts NOW!” to represent the start of the timer and “Time!” to represent the end of the timer.

Schools may record each event as many times as needed and may choose to send in the video of their fastest time.

Each video must follow the “in person” tech challenge rules and use a starting and ending point if needed. Please make sure the team is behind the starting point and behind the end point is seen in your video. 

Please use a tripod and a whole group shot in the center of the frame for each event.

Events

Each team will compete together for the drape fold, prop shift, and leg a platform. From your team, you will choose which student participates in the individual events of knot tying, and costume quick change. Light hang and focus will not be an event this year. Each event will be timed and penalties recorded by the judge. There will be an overall second and first place team as well as a first place for each event.
