Technical Production Training Spaces

When you study technical production and design at TAFE SA, you get to work with contemporary equipment in purpose-built training spaces. These include a lighting studio, design studios, workshops for set construction, props manufacture and scenic art, and costume manufacture workrooms.

A suite of interconnected production offices is designed to replicate typical professional production department organisation and to promote working relationships between student stage managers, technicians and their supervising lecturers.

We also have two theatres – an end-stage/proscenium theatre and black-box theatre – with service facilities including a green room, wardrobe maintenance room and a control room large enough to accommodate classes. Technical resources are regularly upgraded in line with changes to industry technology and trends.
