Technician Induction

Technician Induction

Technicians are the unseen shadows who work behind the scenes and prepare the stage and operate technical systems for a production.

Our after-work technician induction course is your introduction to our backstage technical sound, data, and lighting systems and how they work.

Held onstage by our own Technical Manager, we dissect the various technical systems in the Theatre Royal and introduce you to the range of lighting equipment, identifying correct practices for safe use. Participants receive a take-home resource and are venue-certified to work as a technician backstage for the next 12 months.

Minimum age: 13
Duration: 3 hrs
