Production Drama is an after-school, for-credit class in which students create and participate in Tech’s twice-yearly full-scale theatrical productions as part of Tech’s award-winning, critically-acclaimed OakTechRep student theater company.
Students in Production Drama and OakTechRep have the opportunity to perform challenging theater, to work with established professional actors, playwrights and directors from around the Bay Area, and to see first-rate theater productions in Oakland, Berkeley, San Francisco, and the California Shakespeare Theatre.
Recent OakTechRep productions have included: “The Living” by Anthony Clarvoe; “American Night: The Ballad of Juan Jose by Richard Montoya of Culture Clash (High School Premiere); “In the Red and Brown Water by Tarrel Alvin McCraney (winner of the MacArthur “Genius” Grant) and “99 Years: Legends of Oakland Tech” (original verbatim theatre production).
Production Drama class meets Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 3:30-5:00; short Wednesdays 2:00-5:00. Classes and/or rehearsals may last until 5:30, and rehearsals may last longer as performance time approaches.
Participation in Tech’s productions may be open to students not in Production Drama, at the discretion of the teachers.
