From wigs to wardrobe to sound to stage management, the event aims to motivate and inspire young people to consider a career in backstage positions in the performing arts industry. Attendees will be shown how the different technical departments work together to create the production and be given a sneak peek of some of the stage secrets and magic behind the show.
Backstage and technical team members will share stories from their own career journeys and tips for getting into the industry. The event will round off with a live Q&A.
Get Technical! was first staged by Global Creatures in December 2022 in Sydney as part of the Bohemian Project, an initiative which aims to give back to the community and share the Bohemian Values espoused in Moulin Rouge! The Musical by supporting emerging artists and creatives through arts education and work force training and development. Get Technical! has been staged in cities alongside the Australian tour of Moulin Rouge! The Musical, including events in Perth in March 2023 and Brisbane in June 2023.
