Lights Up! for Educators

RPAA’s Lights Up! for Educators is a FREE professional development series for performing arts teachers. This three-day summer program covers topics such as sound design, light design, stage combat, and show promotion. Each day, attendees will participate in lessons and hands-on activities.
