Tech Challenge is a series of events that are designed to test knowledge of basic theatre technician skills. The combination of team and individual events underline the principle that theatre technicians do not work alone; rather an ensemble working together to accomplish given tasks makes the production successful. Each troupe has the opportunity to register TWO Tech Challenge teams at Iowa Thespian Festival. Each event will be scored, and the winning Tech Challenge team will receive a special prize.
Teams consisting of 4-7 people will participate in 6 team and individual events. The team with the fastest overall time will get a prize! With the exception of time allowances, rules and format for Tech Challange are the same as those for International Thespian Festival.
