Sitting in the main theatre at The Glasshouse have you ever wanted to go backstage and see where the performers and backstage crew hang out? Well during the school holidays you can!
The Glasshouse is running tours of the building and is encouraging locals and tourists alike to come and have a look at where all the magic happens.
Tour guide Lucy Pascale along with back of house coordinator Adam Zac delight curious minds detailing the building’s history and subtle references to the local landscape as well as showing the capabilities of the lighting equipment on stage.
If you are lucky enough you may also get to ascend high above the stage to see the true back stage nature of a working theatre.
“I have worked at the Glasshouse since it opened in 2009 and I have been lucky enough to do a variety of things here over that time,” Ms Pascale said.
“We have so many visitors each year who see the exhibitions or the shows we put on, but in reality there are a large number of workers behind the scenes making it all possible.
“From the shape of the building, to the materials the walls are made from and the design of our theatres, everything has been crafted that way for a reason.
“And being a tour guide means I am able to share that with curious members of the public and show them how the magic happens.”
