    Mr. Bobish has been teaching full-time in New Jersey public schools since 2012 providing instruction in all areas of theatre from performance (acting, voice, dance) to history, design, and tech. Like his students here at APA, Mr. Bobish also began his training at an arts high school, the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts, before earning his BFA in Theatre from the University of Miami. Prior to teaching, Mr. Bobish was a professional actor whose credits include Broadway, national tours, television, and numerous regional theatres including Actors Theatre of Louisville, Goodspeed Opera House, and Paper Mill Playhouse. He is a proud member of Actors Equity Association, SAG-AFTRA, and the American Guild of Variety Artists.


    Creating theatre is an intensely collaborative endeavor that draws upon a wide variety of crafts from the “Creatives” such as playwrights, directors, composers, actors, and designers – to the producers, press agents, lawyers, stagehands, stage managers…and more!

    Theatre is the ultimate team endeavor and its study the epitome of “Project Based Learning.”

    A live production is our project and its realization requires the concerted effort of this diverse array of professionals.

    Each one of these professions requires mastery of its own extensive body of knowledge and skills.

    However, being a THEATRE PROFESSIONAL in any capacity means to possess a great depth of knowledge and skill in not only your particular area – but to also have a substantial grasp of all the others.

    In Technical Theatre we will explore all facets of live theatrical production with particular emphasis on stage management and, of course, the design and implementation of scenery, lighting, costumes, and sound.
    For constructing and painting scenery:
    • Work clothes for carpentry and painting -- These will get dirty and permanently covered in paint (keep a set in your locker)
    • Work gloves
    • Safety goggles
    • Dust mask
    • Ear plugs
    For drafting and sketching throughout the school year:
    • Mechanical Pencils (with plenty of extra leads)
    • High Polymer Erasers
    You should still have your sketchbook from Tech I (either at home or stored in Mr. Sallach's room)
