Technicians

We are currently looking for Freelance Technicians to work on a casual basis. Duties would include light and sound design/management for shows. If you are interested please email info@blueorangetheatre.co.uk with your CV.

 

Work Experience:

We also hold work experience placements exclusively for our youth theatre members. Young people will have the opportunity to experience the day to day workings of a professional theatre such as set design, marketing, workshops, rehearsals, costume creation etc.

One of our members undertook a work experience placement in June 2014. She commented:

‘Before my placement at Blue Orange Theatre I had a careers meeting where the idea of ‘Drama Therapy’ appealed to me most. My placement at Blue Orange Theatre helped me to confirm this career as an option but also opened up the idea of a ‘Workshop Leader’, in which would allow me to work with not only vulnerable people but the general public as well. ‘
