Gain backstage and technical theatre experience and skills with a range of leading theatre venues and companies including Russell Maliphant Dance Company, Theatre Royal Stratford East, The Central (Chatham), and the National Theatre.

Led by industry professionals, these days offer hands-on practical experience of backstage and technical theatre including stage and production management, crewing, scenic design, lighting and sound.

These opportunities can lead to work experience placements with Icon and paid roles as part of the backstage crew on Icon’s professional theatre productions.  We run transport and cover travel expenses for these experience days.

Technical and Backstage Training Days run 4 times a year and details are advertised on our website and our social media (FacebookTwitter and Instagram).
