Tech Challenge

Form your teams and bring your A-game! It's time for a high-energy, skills-based, Olympic-style technical theatre showdown!

Teams of up to seven students can compete for the fastest time (and major bragging rights) in this obstacle course based on backstage expertise. Contestants will need to show their abilities in four events – lighting, rigging, costuming, and construction – in order to take home the winning title. Spectators are welcome and encouraged to cheer on our teams. Good sportsmanship is required by spectators and participants alike.

How to Participate

Students wishing to participate should form a team with their attending school or troupe. The adult registering the students must select the Tech Challenge add-on at the time of registration. Teams should have a minimum of 2 participants and may have a maximum of 7 participants. Schools/troupes may send only one team. Be sure to download the Tech Challenge Guide below for complete rules and procedures, as very specific steps must be followed to gain maximum credit for each event. Note: the Tech Challenge is limited to a capacity of 25 teams. Availability is on a first-come, first-serve basis.
