ALL NEW at the Segal Centre: Technical Training in Professional Theatre (TTiPT)
May 2008

Announcing the launch of a ground breaking professional educational program at one of Canada's premiere performing arts centres!

Plug in to the Canadian and International network of professionals.

Build your career in technical, design or management fields of the performing arts.

Beginning September 5, 2008, the Segal Centre for Performing Arts is launching an innovative educational program for highly motivated and passionate students.

Technical Training in Professional Theatre (TTiPT) is a program for students who are ready to take the final steps required before entering into the world of production in the performing arts. Students will find this challenging program the ideal blend of theoretical and practical training.

What makes this program ideal and unique, is the daily interconnectivity with professional theatre presented within the newly renovated Segal Centre. All students will work with and assist the creators, directors, designers, performers, production managers, technical directors, stage managers and professional artists, who collaborate on all the classical, contemporary and exploratory work presented throughout the theatrical season.

Our students will benefit from personalized training (maximum of 6 students per class), designed for and focussed on their professional goals. As well as immediate contact with the Canadian and International network of performing arts professionals, organizations, manufacturers and associations who contribute to our vital and growing cultural community. This direct contact provides each student with the opportunity to create their own network of professional mentors and learn how to navigate within the world of performing arts.

Students enrolled in this program may also benefit from the opportunity to work as apprentice stage managers on the Theatre’s professional productions. This apprenticeship follows the guidelines and requirements of Canadian Actors’ Equity Association. Under this program an apprentice stage manager must complete a minimum of six productions for at least two different theatres, or eight productions for the same theatre, within three years from the beginning of their first engagement. Upon graduation students are encouraged to apply for junior positions at the Segal Centre.

The fall session begins September 5, 2008
