Console training sessions, scenic techniques, trade show at Jube’s 2017 Production Expo
The Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium is once again hosting Backstage Access: Production Expo on March 28, 2017. This event will provide an opportunity for arts and cultural organizations to attend technical and production seminars, and to see the newest technological advances in equipment in a one day trade show.
Workshops include topics on lighting, audio, video. stage and production management, and safety in your venue. These workshops are led by industry leaders in their field, and sessions are designed for everyone from beginners to experts. A full session pass is $30.00, and we do have some sponsored session passes for nonprofit and community theatre.
The Production Expo trade show will include displays from 30 leading theatre and production equipment manufacturers. This is a chance to see all the newest technology, and get the answers to all your technical questions from the experts. The trade show is free to attend, but you must register on Eventbrite.
In addition, this year, our friends from CITT Alberta and their presenting partner Theatre Alberta along with WOW Lighting are bringing ETC professional trainers to town to teach two different console training sessions. There will be a mid-level session focusing on Enhanced Skills and a second session will be a masterclass in Busking for Live Entertainment. These will be held on March 26 and 27 respectively.
CITT Alberta has arranged for Jenny Knott, the Scenic Paint & Coating Product Manager at Rosco to come and teach a 2-part course on various scenic techniques. Day 1 will be a general class on CrystalGel and other coatings that is open to all. Day 2 will be an advanced class delving deeper into technique where participants will create a stained glass window. As Jenny says “Bring on the goop and let’s get creative.” These classes will run on March 27 and 28.
