AN EXPLORATION OF TECHNICAL

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES IN THE CULTURAL ARTS

Thanks to the Community First Cares Foundation, Players by the Sea was awarded a gift of $10,000 to expand the technical theatre education program called Creativity Behind the Curtain.  Players by the Sea will work with organizations that serve young women at risk to introduce them to career opportunities in technical theatre.  We'll invite program partners in each month for a hands-on technical theatre experience found only at Players by the Sea. Program partners include PACE Center for Girls, Junior Achievement, Junior Achievement Girls Club, and It's a Girls Thing!. More to come!

Young women will come to Players by the Sea for a fully immersive technical experience lead by local professional female theatre artists working in Jacksonville. These students will get hands on experience in Scenic Design & Construction, Lighting Design, Costume Design, Scenic Painting, Props Design and Stage Management.
