The ABTT 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 annual conference takes place every February at a member school.
Performance Support Award
The STSG Performance Support Award is an extra-curricular programme for young people who want to be involved backstage outside the classroom, and to encourage an active interest in the industry.
It has been developed by STSG members in response to demands for a low-cost non-academic course, which can be tailored to suit the needs of technicians and tutors responsible for running after-school clubs or tech crews, and for pupils getting their first taste of backstage theatre.
