The School Theatre Support Group (STSG) is a small but established network of professional theatre technicians and managers working in UK schools and colleges. We offer a community of support to this specialist yet important market, responsible for many professionally-equipped small theatres as well as training and encouraging the next generation of theatre practitioners.
We are primarily a members-led organisation, focused around our annual weekend conference. Members can easily contact other members to share information, ask questions and arrange visits.
We are affiliated with the Association of British Theatre Technicians.
Next conference date TBA.
Our most recent conference took place on Saturday 21st February 2015 at Dean Close School in Cheltenham. A big thanks to those who attended, the team at Dean Close School for hosting us, and to all our sponsors and workshop leaders.
Student Award Scheme
The Performance Support Award has been created in order to recognise the achievements of young people who are interested in the backstage world, and to help 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 theatre.
