The Southeastern Summer Theatre Institute is among the top summer theatre programs for high school students in the United States. Perhaps one of the most identifiable aspects of an SSTI production is a dedication to technical excellence. From the professional sets to the grueling technical rehearsal process, the actors annually get an experience unlike every experienced in their own schools. SSTI has created an experience that is unrivaled amongst other summer theatre programs. For each session 5-7 technical students will be selected through an interview process and given the opportunity to be immersed in the world of design, construction and production execution for four weeks under the leadership of the nationally recognized staff of the Institute. Students enrolled in SSTI Tech will get instruction and gain real world experience in every facet of the technical process from lighting, sound, design and construction. Students will live and work along side the performers in their chosen session to bring the show to life. By the session's third week, the team members are ready to be in complete control and run the show that they have created.
