The ‘Tech Team’ manages and oversees the production of all technical aspects of all live theatre and guest events within Simcoe Little Theatre. They oversee lighting, sound, costume and/or set building requirements throughout the presenting season. They work closely with the Artistic Director, Producers and Directors. The Tech Team answers to the Producers. Producers in turn work with and answer to the Artistic Director.
Each Tech Team member will be responsible for at least one of the main stage productions (four Tech Team members per show) and work in tandem on guest events or special projects. Tech Team members will decide which shows they will each ‘tech’ before the presenting season.
