Students involved in Concordia’s theatre program take responsibility and ownership of all productions. Technical Assistants (TA’s) are students who run many facets of the theatre with professional staff mentorship. Theatre TA’s 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 each school year. For more information about TA applications, please contact the theatre department.
