Technical Theatre for 12+

“It made me realize that I don’t just have to be an actor to be in theatre.
There are so many more things I can be.”

By taking part in one of our Technical Theatre projects, you can learn about and gain skills in making and running:

  • Lighting
  • Sound
  • Sets
  • Costumes and Make Up
  • Props
  • Stage Management

Technical Theatre Production Group

This project will introduce you to stage management, set, lighting, sound, props and costumes for the theatre.  You will have an opportunity to work with professional theatre technicians and go on a backstage tour with the possibility of a practical workshop to develop skills. You will have the chance to work backstage on LYT’s summer production with an intensive production week at the end of July.

You will gain the opportunity to develop your theatre skills, find out about careers in technical theatre and the chance to take part in a full scale production.

Sessions will take place:

May – July 2018

At the Broadway Theatre Rehearsal Room in Catford.

Mondays 4.30pm – 6.30pm
