Technical Services for Theatre


Theatres, schools, and drama societies trust the diligent and personal hire service which Showbitz offers. We understand the budgetary, logistical, and technical demands of theatrical productions of all sizes – and take pride in working closely with our customers to develop technical solutions that suit their production.

Each play, musical, or comedy gig is different. When working with a touring production, we can help to develop the show’s technical specification, aid in drafting technical riders, and provide medium to long term hire packages for core technical equipment. Naturally, our experts are available throughout your run to provide technical support via telephone and email.

Venues themselves approach Showbitz for remedial production assistance throughout the year, available at short notice and on either long or short term contracts. We can guide venue managers through technical riders, and provide supplementary equipment to meet the specification of an incoming production.
