Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Good at working with your hands, leaving school soon and like the idea of an exciting job where your skills are in demand? From the Olympics ceremony to Glastonbury, Hollywood to the West End, there's no event that doesn't rely on an army of highly skilled backstage people. Britain's reputation in this field is second to none. With opportunities increasing around the world, the UK needs to train thousands more. If you have a knack for building things, design, electrics, computers, or a flair for costume, hair and make-up, then you’re the sort of person the industry wants. Produced by experts writing for the world-renowned publication for the performing arts and entertainment, The Stage Guide to Working Backstage series consists of five essential books. Our introduction provides you with an overview of what's on offer, how to find funding and what area of work suits you best. The other four volumes focus on key areas - stage management, craft and construction, lighting and sound, plus costume and make-up.
