Production Management

Apprentices work with our full-time production management staff. Production management has the critical role of keeping a production running smoothly from conceptualisation through rehearsals, set-up, performances and eventually strike and archival. Apprentices will assist the production management team in coordinating the various production disciplines – scenic, lighting, wardrobe, sound, multimedia projection, stage management. Production management apprentices are required to fulfil office hours in the department as well as attend to the needs of the production during performances.
