Mt. Vernon Senior High School is fortunate to have a very active technical theatre program with an enrollment of 70 students. Class work includes audio design/reinforcement, lighting design, scenic design, construction techniques, scenic painting, costuming, rigging and theatre safety.
In addition to class work, the students build five shows a year including a traveling Children's Theatre production, two musicals, a radio drama and a straight play.

Recent outside projects include the Evansville Philharmonic Peppermint Pops (moving light programming), The Really Big Show at The Centre (Evansville) (Scenic construction and lighting design), Evansville Dance Theatre "The Nutcracker" and Evansville Ballet's "Scenes from Swan Lake" (lighting design and execution)
