Middlesex County Vocational & Technical Schools has honored Greg Hancox and Carolyn DeWolf of S.T.A.R. LLC, in Lyndhurst, who were instrumental in the development of the district’s Arts Technology (Technical Theater) program.
S.T.A.R. LLC has coordinated with NJ and NY Stage Hands Union contractors to deliver career guidance and specialty presentations and workshops on many aspects of the technical theater industry, including live audio setup and production, truss and rigging seminars, spotlights, power and cable distribution, and theater load-ins and load-outs.
“Our goal was to make this a world-class technical theater program, and these valuable workshops and Greg and Carolyn’s technical expertise have provided our students with a wealth of knowledge and hands-on skills that has is second to none,” said MCVTS superintendent Dianne Veilleux.
“Their ability to coordinate on-site workshops at locations such as the Production Resource Group and the Paper Mill Playhouse, as well as bringing subject matter experts to our East Brunswick campus, has given our Arts Technology students unique perspectives regarding the knowledge and performance expectations of Stage Hands Union employees, and the experience of working side-by-side with active union members on current professional performances and events,” Veilleux said.
