Chipola Theatre Tech Students Go to Work


Chipola College technical theatre students will go to work this summer in Florida, Georgia, and Virginia. To enhance their work experience, technical theatre students are encouraged to work in theatres across the country during the summer.  “Our students go through an extensive interview process to work with these professional theatre companies. They are hired based on their portfolio of the work they produce for theatre productions, Show Choir/music productions and work with professional artists visiting our stage,” said Director of Technical Theatre Connie Smith.
