National Theatre Young Technicians

The NT Young Technicians in a workshop

National Theatre Young Technicians

Sign up for National Theatre Young Technicians. Starting in October 2018

Are you interested in lighting, sound, video and automation? Are you aged between 14–18? Then our technical theatre workshops could be for you!

The National Theatre Young Technicians programme offers an exciting opportunity to develop your skills and learn all about a variety of backstage and off-stage roles from top industry professionals.

The National Theatre is an equal opportunities organisation, committed to diversity.  We actively encourage applications from young BAME candidates and young women as we recognise these groups are currently under-represented in the field of technical theatre. 

National Theatre Young Technicians will run for ten Wednesday evening sessions between October and December 2018 and will introduce the group to the basics of technical theatre including lighting, sound and video. All participants will then be given the option to continue on the programme into term two (January–March) where they can develop their skills further. In the Easter and Summer holidays participants will then have the opportunity to shadow professionals and provide technical support to the National theatre youth programme.
