Spend a day backstage at the Barbican with the RSC's technical team as they prepare for the evening’s performance of Julius Caesar. 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 hands on 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 Julius Caesar to life on the Barbican’s stages.
Ticket includes access to a full day workshop and evening performance of Julius Caesar for each student and accompanying teacher/s (up to 30 students and up to 3 teachers- a ratio of 1 teacher to every 10 students).
Suitable for secondary school aged students in Years 9-13.
