Spend a day backstage at the Barbican with the RSC's technical team as they prepare for the evening’s performance of King Lear. The day will give students an insight into the technical process of staging a production, as well as the broad range of careers in the production process and wider theatre industry.

Students will work with members of the lighting, stage management, sound and design teams on specific production tasks, and will bring a moment of their own version of King Lear to life on the Barbican’s stages.

Date: Tuesday 22 November 2016, 10am-5pm
Cost per class of 30 students: 
East London based schools: £150; UK maintained schools: £300; Independent and international: £1,100 (or profit making model £2,000)
