TIP Crew

TIP: Tech in Progress

Unfortunately, due to the pandemic and our mainstage being produced in a new way this fall, there will be no TIP Crew this fall. Students interested in interning may apply here (a handful of tech interns will be needed for our event). The Spring TIP Crew is still in place but that may change. Be sure to subscribe to our newsletter and socials to find out when we hold special tech seminars and workshops!

The tech crew is what changes a play into a performance. Come and learn the basics of lighting, sound, and fly system.

Three training/work days will allow students to experience all aspects of technical theatre. During the performance, students will get to choose which crew they would like to work on, including backstage crew.

Each member of the tech crew will be required to own a pair of heat resistant work gloves, available at any hardware store, a small flashlight, and a set of black clothing, including black shoes & socks,  to wear during the production. Led by Melissa + Jason Lamb.

To fulfill part of above mentioned black clothing requirement, students may purchase a black Production Themed crew T-Shirt from the illuminate Shop.


Pandemic Note: At illuminate, we are working hard to carve a path through this pandemic that both follows the CDC guidelines and state regulations while also allowing students to take classes, create, collaborate, and shine. Click here to read a summary of what this will look like. We are revising these for the next semester as the pandemic continues to evolve. Thank you!

Tuition policies for 2020-2021: this year, due to the pandemic, we will be working with a new fee and payment schedule. Tuition is $5 per half hour (so most classes are $10/hour). You will be billed monthly for each month of classes held – that way, if we end up in lockdown again, it will be easier for us to manage refunds. Additional fees for class materials are listed on the class pages (and in their descriptions). Normally, we do not offer refunds after the first two weeks of classes, but because we are in a pandemic, we will be offering refunds for any classes missed due to covid (but not for classes that met successfully or have a livestream option).
