Behind the Scenes

Lots of work goes on behind-the-scenes at Concordia Theatre with every show you come to watch. Whether it be Front of House that greet you when you walk in, or the people that serve you in the bar or the technical staff backstage, in sound or lighting. Every show takes lots of preparation and work, to ensure the best experience is brought to the stage for our patrons. Many months of planning, rehearsals and effort from the cast, production team and technical crew who give up their time for your entertainment.
