Digital Theatre Sound Design Workshop
North Carolina School of the Arts is hosting a Digital Theatre Sound Design workshop this summer.  This 3-day continuing education course will teach adult students how to afford the latest digital sound equipment and use it to produce professional-quality sound designs for their organizations.  The first day will focus on producing digital sound content using Pro Tools and Reason; day two, programming digital sound playback with SFX from Stage Research; and day three, sound in theatrical space where students will learn how to give their sound a three-dimensional, dynamic presence in the theatre.

Two sessions will be available: July 12-14 and July 26-28, 2005.  Continuing education credits will be granted.  For more information, contact Jason Romney at 336-770-3215 or, or visit the School's website at
