We are pleased to announce our brand-new course Sound For Stage Managers, after several years of research, pilots schemes and investigation.

Increasingly Stage Managers in the theatre world are expected to possess skills in multiple areas and are asked to work across departments - often without adequate preparation.

This course is tailored for Stage Management of all levels, touching upon the basic elements of theatre sound that may be required in their current or future job roles. "Sound For Stage Managers" covers the fundamentals of how audio systems work, midi sound effects show control, an understanding of Qlab show audio programming, radio microphone and basic comms equipment techniques.

The aim is to give Stage Managers more confidence in understanding the "black arts" that lie within sound and communications - to empower them to not be fearful of cross-over roles and to enlighten them has two how best react when things don't go quite as originally planned!

"Sound For Stage Managers" will bring a higher level of understanding when operating sound for a play, for a Tech ASM covering sound roles on a musical, or the ever-increasing demands of Stage Management in the rehearsal room or live event.

Hands-on experience is an essential aspect with Orbital's training courses, which include guest experts and significant use of equipment guided by our experienced team.
