Each year NTPA produces over 150 shows, creating the opportunity for more than 300 technicians to design and operate shows.

TechTrack creates a home for technicians wanting to work tech more often, and grow in a community of other technicians. Whether you’re between school performances or looking for somewhere to push buttons, TechTrack is ready for you.


Looking to enrich your technical skills? TechTrack offers workshops to take a closer look at the science behind all aspects of lighting and audio design. Outside the tech booth there are workshops to cover the fundamentals of Stage Management and Technical Directing.
