Join our touring companies and gain an insight into rehearsal room technique and repertoire. Including opportunities to shadow technical rehearsals.

Explore the creative careers that go into bringing productions to our stage.
A day jam-packed with interactive talks and insights will inspire students. We may pique your curiosity with a career your students have not considered before!
Prices start from £150 per class.
Watch a show and then take part in a 30-minute introduction to the world of technical theatre and its careers. Tech Tasters are delivered by our technical teams and visiting companies.
We will give a demonstration of up to five technical areas pertinent to the production. To support the insight, we provide a video resource and in-classroom exercises.
We hold an event once a term for teachers to share information on projects and opportunities.
This is usually followed by a show trip to one of our venues as a thank you. It also provides the opportunity to network with other teachers.
Available throughout the year, this package for KS3 and KS4 includes:
