Technical Team

The Technical Production Team at the Crescent works closely with the hiring companies from as early as a month before the show comes to the theatre. They are responsible for setting up Production Meetings with the hirers and providing them with technical assistance both in the run up to the show as well as during the time that the show is in situ.

The team is in charge of ensuring that all of the technical needs of the hirer are provided, including Lighting Design, Sound Operation and Staging and Rigging. Once this role has been completed, each show is assigned one Technician to oversee each performance, both from a Health and Safety point of view as well as from a Technical one.

If you have any questions or queries about your incoming show, would like to enquire about a Production Meeting or would like some more information on a possible idea for you show, please call the Technical Team:
