It’s back! Pulling the Strings: An insight into Spare Parts Puppet Theatre’s technical department

7 December, 2023

Calling all theatre enthusiasts!

Have you ever wondered what happens behind the curtain, or how the lights or music magically change? Are you interested in a career in theatre? Then this event is an absolute must-attend! Join us for an exclusive behind-the-scenes glimpse into the operations of the technical department of Spare Parts Puppet Theatre.

Our Stage Manager will guide you through the process of making a puppetry theatre show. You will learn about the specialised equipment used in puppetry, and gain insight into various technical aspects involved in live performance including cueing music, sound effects and lighting changes. Understanding the technical aspects of theatre is crucial for anyone who wants to pursue a career in this industry.

Following this experience, you’ll be treated to a performance of our much-anticipated new show, Pillow Fight, where you will appreciate the performance even more after seeing the behind-the-scenes magic.
