In these pre-recorded workshops, you’ll learn technical theatre concepts and skills from LCT’s very own Technical Directors. Each class comes with suggested projects you can make alongside watching the videos to aid in your students’ learning! Booking a pre-recorded class will give you access to your chosen class’s videos for the rest of the semester (through May 21).

Video pass pricing is based on the number of students streaming. When booking, you may select Classroom (1 – 30 students), Grade Level (30 – 130 students) or Entire School (130+ students).
