This series of instructional DVDs is perfect for the teacher who feels more at home with a prompt book than a hammer and would welcome a new, visually oriented teaching tool for their tech classes and production crews. Developed by master theater educators Bob and Marti Fowler, the series is engaging and fun for students. The lessons in this series will help turn your students into valuable theater technicians who know what to do and how to do it. Many schools purchase the programs with technology, library, safety and career funds. With each program, your school gets a site license to use the DVD and CD-ROM materials forever!
