"When I did the technical theatre course, it was great fun! Spotlites Stage Manager and Technical Director ran it and they explained everything in detail so I understood it. It was my first time doing the course. The other people who did the course had done it before, they knew what they were doing; I didn't so they helped me loads.
We learnt how to do different things, eg cueing (lights, sound, smoke machine) wardrobe (sewing and costumes) and much more.

It was also fun! I also got the chance to do backstage for a recent show called 'The Witches'. I did the lighting, which was complicated at times because I might have to do a projection as well! I didn't have to go to all the rehearsals, but the ones I did go to were amazing, from what the Director had already been able to put together." Grace, 14
