The theatre crew is made up of pupils from all years of the school (Y9-U6). The group meets once or twice a week to help prepare for shows and gain an insight into the "other side" of theatre.
Under the direction of our in-house professional technicians, the crew are responsible for providing all the technical and backstage support for the productions and events in the theatre and elsewhere. This can involve all aspects of work behind-the-scenes including lighting, sound, stage management, scenic design, construction, painting, props, costume, etc.
The theatre crew provides a relaxed and fun atmosphere in which to develop confidence, communication, team-working skills and the theatre craft.
Great Hall has extensive new professional facilities, designed specifically to maximise student involvement backstage.
Complimentary to the crew, there is a separate activity for those who prefer to help with costume, hair-styling and make-up for productions.
