University of Arizona takes to Zoom to bring theater classes to Tucson teens

Joe Klug, who teaches scenic design at the University of Arizona, has spent some of his isolation time watching webinars put together by theater companies.

But the assistant professor realized they were all geared toward college students.

“So, it got me thinking, what if we put together something for Southern Arizona high school students?” Klug says. “I wanted to do something that was going to bring some good into the world at this point in time.”

The UA’s Virtual Theatre Lab was born. Over the past two weeks, the school’s faculty has taken to Zoom to teach seminars on such classes as scenic design, speaking with a British accent, technical direction, sound design, costume design and voice. All the seminars were offered free to high school students.
