The School Theatre Support Group (STSG) is an established network of professional theatre technicians and managers working in UK schools and colleges. We offer a community of support to this specialist field, responsible for many professionally-equipped theatres across the country, as well as training and facilitating the next generation of theatre practitioners.
We are primarily a members-led organisation, focused around our annual weekend conference. Members are also encouraged to share information, ask questions and arrange visits.
STSG is affiliated with the Association of British Theatre Technicians .
Our most recent conference took place on Saturday 20th February at St Peter's School in Bournemouth.
Pupil Award Scheme
The Performance Support Award has been created in order to recognise the achievements of school-aged young people who are interested in the backstage world, and to encourage them to progress in the industry.
It has been developed by STSG members in response to demands for a non-academic course, which can be tailored to suit the needs of technicians and tutors responsible for pupils undertaking extra-curricular activities in the school theatre.
