Most people do not realize that Technical Theatre even exists, and of those who do, not many realize the great potential that Technical Theatre programs have for reforming education. Through an examination of the basic history of education in the United States, as well as of the current trends in student preparation for careers and the workforce, it is clear that Technical Theatre offers an educational model that addresses many of the difficulties experienced in today's educational systems. By integrating the core subjects with hands-on learning, technical skills, 21st century soft skills, and both learner-centered and group-learning methodologies, Technical Theatre bridges the gap between academic and vocational training while also preparing students for jobs, careers, and life.
