Technical Theatre Services

What we do

Standing In The Wings provide support for concerts, events and productions for schools across Northamptonshire and Bedfordshire.

Our team will arrange meetings with key staff to understand the objectives and aims for the event, undertake a venue visit and work with you to plan the technical elements of your event.

We can build rigs or use the rig you have at your venue. We can use your equipment and/or bring our own to the venue. We are very happy to work with your students in a mentoring capacity to give them hands-on experience and guidance on how to achieve the best results.

From pre-production, to get in, the performance(s) to the get out, our team are there for it all, providing professional services to enhance your event.

All health and safety requirements are met and all of our team are DBS cleared.

“Standing In The Wings worked with us on our end of year dance shows in December 2021 and December 2022. They provide a professional service creating excellent visuals and technical support in a safe environment. We’re looking forward to working with them on our next event.”

Cara Sigsworth, CAREL Academy

“Standing in the Wings absolutely made our school production of Fame Jr in March 2023; it was our first venture with SITW and it definitely won’t be our last! From the very first meeting it was clear that Kathryn and Ricky have an absolute passion to deliver and share their expertise of sound and lighting production to schools and groups who are less experienced or have minimal equipment, so that they can really engage the performers to do their very best. We had support with buying some of our own equipment, making repairs, hiring a lot of lighting and hands on help for the actual performances and to top it all, it was really reasonably priced.

I cannot recommend SITW highly enough and we are very much looking forward to working with the team again for our next school event.”
