Students involved in Concordia’s theatre program take responsibility and ownership of all productions. Theatre TAs are work-study positions and are in charge of supplementing the professional staff in areas such as program creation, light design, ticket sales, promotions, marketing, set creation and costume creation.
TA applications are accepted at the end of spring semester for the following academic year.
The Public Relations TAs focus on marketing and advertising for Concordia Theatre productions. Members gain experience in publishing production programs, creating posters, writing press releases and other types of publicity. Additional responsibilities include: ticket sales, training student volunteers and overall house management.
Scene Shop TAs help construct sets needed for each show. They are supervised by the technical director and gain knowledge of basic carpentry and painting skills.
Costume Shop TAs work with the designer, designing and sewing costumes for members of each cast.
Light and Sound
Light TAs work with the director of campus lights and the lighting designer to hang and position lights for each show and to take them down. Sound TAs assist with cast microphones and speakers, and prepare and maintain sound equipment during the run of the show.
