Stage Technician Courses

A Stage Technician helps out with multiple jobs during a stage production or performance. You might position or operate lighting or sound equipment such as microphones or spotlights, or you may assist with camera or transmitter equipment. Stage Technicians might position props or other items on stage or ensure they are ready for actors or performers when needed.

Stage Technicians should be flexible and ready to handle whatever task they are assigned. You’ll need to be skilled in a range of different equipment and be able to work well in a team environment. Stage Technicians should be very organised and able to follow a production schedule. It’s important that you can communicate well and follow directions.
