Time flies at RADA. Reflecting on our last set of shows (Dying For It, No One Sees The Video and The Bright and Bold Design) that is one thing I have discovered. It seems like only a week ago that we were having our induction and now we are already on our second set of shows!
At RADA there are two methods of teaching the Technical Theatre and Stage Management Course; rotation and linear. For rotation teaching we are divided into five small groups, each working in alternating departments which are Scenic Construction, Stagecraft, Lighting and Sound, Props and Wardrobe and Scenic Art.
In linear teaching there are a different four groups for lectures in other aspects of Technical Theatre such as Stage Management, Technical Drawing and Design. It is the rotation groups that determine our roles for the RADA shows.
