Ellesmere Arts Centre Technical Crew

For me Tech Crew is a never ending aspect of school, full of fun and educational experiences.  For the past two years Mr Harm has been putting us through our paces in all aspects of Technical Theatre including Sound, Stage Management, Lighting, Costume and Set Design.

The team of nine is growing stronger each day.  Along with many other things, we learn to be intuitive and co-ordinate with actors to bring script ideas to life accompanying everyone’s own ideas.

In Tech Crew we help out with all aspects where our expertise is required, from microphones in assembly to the infamous Senior School plays.  We spend around two hours per week in Tech Crew and more during showtimes and before the performances.  We all work with older and younger pupils and this helps us to develop our experience and have the opportunity to teach our skills and ideas to others.
