Get Into: Production (Greenock)
RCS x Fair Access x Beacon Arts Centre
Over the day, pupils, students, and teachers from Inverclyde Academy, Clydeview Academy, Notre Dame High School and West College Scotland worked with RCS Production staff and technicians from the Beacon. Young people operated lighting and sound equipment, completed a scenic art team building task (involving spaghetti and marshmallows) and got to explore the fly floor of the main auditorium, thanks to the wonderful Beacon tech team! They also got to find out about the range of careers in production arts and technology and how Fair Access can support them. Here are some of the things people said:
“There’s a lot of choices and opportunities at the Conservatoire; lighting, sound etc as well as art, production, design. I’m really interested in the Production Arts and Design course, and I’ve applied this year. The things I saw today have made me enthusiastic about possibly gaining a place on this course!”
“It was good to hear that there are different opportunities outwith further education which RCS helps with. Also seeing the lighting and sound desks as this is the pathway I wish to follow.”
“What was most interesting was finding out how much things go on back-stage and how much time and effort it takes to make a show come to life!”
