Thalian Association Community Theatre Leadership Program

Ages 12 and up

The TACT Leadership Program is designed to give those interested in learning more about specific jobs in the theatre community the chance to have an up-close, hands-on experience. Participants will have the chance to be paired with a team member in the field of their choosing. Once paired, they will “shadow” their mentor through the entire creative process from pre-production planning to closing of the show. Participants will have the chance to learn new skills, participate by assisting their mentor, and receive detailed instruction by a veteran creative team member.

The TACT Mentor Program is for those who are seriously interested in expanding their knowledge in a particular artistic field. It is a serious time commitment for the teacher and the student. Those being mentored should have fun while also remaining punctual, respectful, ready to jump in and help, and ready to learn.

Positions available to shadow are:
Artistic Director/Producer
Music Director
Set Designer
Stage Manager
Costume Designer
Music Director
