About hiring institutionThe Davidson Fine Arts Magnet School was established as an academic institution enhanced with the study of the arts. The Technical Theater department is the newest course of study that is available to students in grades 6-12 (ages 11-18). It has been a challenge for the technical director/instructor to balance the need for instruction in the art of technical theater while being able to train crews to support and work shows on the heavy performance calendar. This position needs to be filled by an individual who possesses a commitment to education and who enjoys the challenges of working and mentoring students in the age group that Davidson houses. It will be necessary for the individual to work closely with the Fine Arts Department Chair and the Audio-Visual Director in order to develop a syllabus that will enable students to be proficient and knowledgeable in the art of technical theater while developing the skills necessary to aid the TD in mounting shows in a timely manner. Otherwise the program will not continue to grow and succeed. It is important to understand that 98% of the students who have chosen to concentrate their art studies in the area of Technical Theatre will not chose to pursue this as a career upon graduation. However, it is the responsibility of the technical theater instructor to train his/her students as if they were going to make this choice. This idea holds true for all of the instructors in the Fine Arts Department at Davidson.
