The Creative Industries
The creative industry depends heavily on the Backstage Crew to support the designers and performers with the running of the show.
Backstage Crew covers a multitude of different roles, including:
- Set Designers and Builders – creating, building and repairing props and scenery
- Stage Technicians – operating light and soundboards, loading and unloading scenery, stage management and assisting with the production
- Maintenance Technicians – managing, maintaining and repairing the technical aspects of the performance
- Costume Designers, Tailors and Textile Operatives – managing the wardrobe, and creating, maintaining and repairing costumes
Working with creative industry partners, The National College Creative Industries has developed a series of frameworks designed to provide a clear path to a successful backstage role.
