The Technicians receive practical training from all technical departments across the theatre including sound, lighting, stage management, wardrobe, workshop and design. Following their initial training each Technician creates an individual training plan that focuses on developing advanced skills in a specific area of technical theatre.
The technicians then work on all the productions created by the Young Company, from rigging the lights to stage managing the show, they are the technical team.

The TECHNICIANS is for anyone interested in…

  • practical training in all areas of technical theatre
  • working on productions
  • working alongside professional theatre staff

This is the first show I’ve stage managed on –so I’ll always remember that. Being part of the Young Company was been wonderful; it’s a safe place for young people to explore their creative sides, as well as allowing us to venture into creating professional and well-respected names for ourselves.”
