Are you interested in all things backstage? Do you want to find out what it takes to become a sound or lighting technician? Know how costume is made from page to finished product? Learn about how we take a show from the rehearsal room to the stage? Come along to our Young Techies Course. 

From 12 – 16 August, we are running a week-long course to introduce young people to technical theatre skills. You will be working with our professional technicians to learn about all of the different elements of technical theatre and get hands-on in our theatre spaces.  

The programme includes sessions on Sound and Lighting Design, Set and Costume Design, Stage Management and Props… AND a ticket to Paranormal Activity, our upcoming co-production with Simon Friend Entertainment.


Leeds Playhouse Youth Theatre Members: £180
Non-Members: £200
