Theatre Production Arts Certificate - Closed

Flexible dates depending on courses selected; eligible courses are offered from July 6 to August 23, 2019

The Theatre Production Arts Certificate was created to encourage students to become knowledgeable in many facets of the theatre production world.  To complete this program, participants take five one-week courses during our summer 2019 program. Spots for Theatre Productions Arts students are limited so please sign up early. Upon completion of the five courses, participants will receive the Off the Wall Theatre Production Arts certificate.

  Intro course is full

The low student-to-teacher ratio ensures instruction is geared to the participant's skill level and experience. Please indicate your related experience when you register.

The course fee covers the cost of your materials during the courses; however, in this program participants have the opportunity to work on personal projects. Depending on the complexity of those projects, additional costs for materials may be incurred and are the responsibility of the student.


Cost: $1800 + additional material surcharge of $70 should you choose Artistic Welding. Artistic Welding classes are full and have been taken off the list of courses available for TPA.
