Backstage Pass Tours

Backstage Pass Tours

Share the magic of theatre with our immersive Backstage Pass tours.

Backstage Pass
is the perfect way to give your students a greater insight and understanding of how a professional theatre works and an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look into theatre and music production.

Available as an add-on to a show or a standalone activity, each tour is unique and can be tailored to meet your school group’s learning outcomes and needs.

  • Primary School Students: Kindergarten – Year 6 (Stages 1 – 3)
    These tours are ideal as an add-on activity for schools attending a show or workshop. They usually run for 30 – 45 minutes and are designed to provide an overview and develop your students’ appreciation of the theatre and how it runs.
  • Junior Secondary School Students: Years 7 – 10 (Stages 4 – 5)
    Running for 1 – 2 hours, tours for these stages work well as an add-on to a show or a standalone activity. They provide students with an overview to the theatre and explore details around lighting and sound, stage mechanics, theatre roles and event management.
  • Senior Secondary Students: Years 11 – 12 (Stage 6)
    Ideal for students studying Drama or VET Entertainment, we recommend a half or full day tour with a focus on specific areas. These tours delve further into the complexities of lighting and sound, stage mechanics and more.

CEO John Vassallo believes, “there’s an enormous social value in showing children they can imagine the unimaginable. In order to boost literacy and create well-rounded, confident, curious and creative minds, kids need the opportunity to be involved in live theatre.”
