About Us

About the society:

Now in its second year of running, the Technical Theatre Society was started with the aim of providing better collaboration between societies at York. We hope to be a gateway for students who want to get involved in running shows, and a resource for other societies to easily find technicians and hire equipment.

We also hope to give the societies the flexibility to perform in venues that aren't fitted out with permanent lighting and sound equipment, as we build up our portable tech rig.

Our training programme will be based around ETC Eos lighting control software running on a dedicated PC. Eos based software and control desks are widely used in many theatres across the UK and US. A full equipment inventory is available in the Hire section.

We are partnered with Central Hall Musical Society, the Pantomime Society and the Gilbert and Sullivan Society and work with many other societies and groups across the university and the city of York.
