Handmaid's Tale Women in Technical Theatre Weekend

Are you interested in what goes on behind the scenes? Do you identify as female and aged between 15–21? Then our technical theatre weekend could be for you!

Over two jam-packed days you’ll work with young people from across London, and professional technicians from ENO, to explore what goes into making ENO’s production of Handmaid’s Tale – a new operatic interpretation of Margret Attwood’s acclaimed dystopian novel. 

Learn the basics of technical theatre including lighting, sound and stage management, through demonstrations and practical activities, led by the technical teams at English National Opera. 

The weekend will take place in person at the London Coliseum on Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 April and is free to all Under 21 ticket bookers. A ticket to The Handmaid’s Tale performance on the evening of Saturday 3 April is also included. 

Places are limited, to apply please fill in the application form below by 1 February 2022.
