When I first was hired to teach theatre I was ecstatic! I was prepared for anything...except teaching Tech. What did I know? I was an actor! Then, at a conference, I meet Bob and saw his product...it was, quite literally, my salvation. The product has a relevancy to high school theatre that no other product does. Bob and Marti have made me a better Theatre Educator and I now consider myself a bonafide TECHIE!"
The PTT programs are great! Since I started using them, I have been able to get my students out of the classroom and on stage working weeks earlier than before I got the programs.
The Interactive Educational DVDs are a must for any drama department. It brings all the technical aspects to life by demonstrating so many things. Give your students the wonderful present of these DVDs
I just finished my student teaching at Lafayette High School. We used your DVD's in our Stagecraft class and I was very impressed with the content, quality, and support materials. I plan to utilize your DVD's in my future classroom."
The Practical Technical Theatre series is the perfect compliment to the hands on work in my Stagecraft classes. The series is easy for teachers to use - regardless of your technical training - and includes lesson plans and suggested alternatives. For sometime the technical theatre training at our school has fallen behind the acting and performance training. I feel confident that I am furthering my students' technical theatre education and improving our design standards with the use of this series.
Definitely worth the money! This program really helped introduce my theatre students to the basics! Can't wait to get the new DVD'S! Thanks!
I had never done tech and all of a sudden, I'm in charge of everything, including all the tech stuff! Your DVD's have made a huge difference in our program. We perform in a gym, so your tour of theatres showed my students parts of a stage they'd never seen before. I understand lighting for the first time in my life. My students even named a mannequin "Bob" after you!
Being a first year teacher, with 99% of my students being first year techs, I could not have survived without the P.T.T. program. This thing is a life saver. From the content to the production quality, this program is awesome!
I firmly believe that your stage management training helped our students train to be more professional in their approach to their work as stage managers. In particular, we've had a couple of students who had entered IE's at State conference and received good comments but not the 'prize.' This changed for our one student this year. Following the training she received from the course, she not only received a SUPERIOR rating for here IE, but the adjudicator also wrote that she was ready to do an internship at a professional theatre. Wanted you to know that your work is helping my students succeed, and for that I thank you!
Thank you Bob and Marti for making these DVDs! My tech theatre class is so much more relevant when the kids can see other theatres, both in academia and the "real world." Showing examples on your programs also helps my budget... The kids can see real things and I don't have to build them! The lesson plans are great, too! So easy to have complete units, complete with assessment. Thanks again! I look forward to future releases.
"I just wanted to let you know we did the costuming DVD series with Terry not too long ago, and it is MARVELOUS! The resources and information are very well organized, and the kids who told me "I can't draw!" were so proud of themselves as they started sketching costume designs for our spring show! Next one will be the Audio one I got! Can't wait!!"
