Spotlight shifts to those in a production capacity, thanks to new theatre degree in Mackay 

CQUniversity Mackay's new Technical Theatre degree specialisation will cater for students who are keen to work in the creative and performing arts in a production capacity.

Course coordinator Ian Gaskell says the three-year degree will help students develop skills as a producer, director, stage/production manager, theatre technician, technical director or theatre manager.

Based at the Central Queensland Conservatorium of Music Theatre, and designed for Mackay Campus, the new program will offer a specialised study environment.

"New technical theatre facilities are in the planning stages and when complete will place students in the perfect environment that will develop their technical skills and experience in stagecraft, stage and production management, lighting, sound, and technical direction," Mr Gaskell says.

Technical Theatre is among a range of new programs set to be profiled during the Mackay Campus Open Day on Sunday, August 7. This free day offers the chance for prospective students to chat with academic staff and current students, as well as activities for family groups. LINK for more Open Day details
