Technical Theatre is, put simply, everything that goes on in the theatre that involves an electrical current, moving parts, danger, blood, guts, or death. Be it lighting the actors, giving them music to dance to, pyrotechnics to avoid, or smoke to hide behind, tech. is vital to the success of a show.
Tech. can be confusing at first, and - let's face it - all the way through. Here, we aim to show a clear path through - from rigging to running and everything in between, behind and all around.
As usual, any editing/additions/etc much appreciated - let's make this thing useful!
