A backstage theatre production program offered through the Red River Technical Vocational Area will bring a little bit of Hollywood and Broadway to Southern Manitoba.


Coordinator Harv Giesbrecht says the course will begin in the second semester of the 2009-10 school year, and be based in Western School Division.

He notes it's one of the most innovative things they've tried.

Giesbrecht hopes this will appeal to a different type of student, possibly someone who may not see themselves entering a skilled trade.

He notes many schools have drama programs, but no one has a program in theatre production.
