Trigger Warning

BACKSTAGE ACCESS Production Expo will be returning to the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium in Edmonton on March 28, 2017. Our last four years shows have been very successful and well attended by the theatre and music production and management community.  This year we are adding some new features to the event. Over 25 manufacturers and distributors will be onsite at the Jubilee displaying new technology in a tradeshow format. Factory specialists from major lighting, sound, video and staging companies will be there to answer your questions and provide hands on demos of all the newest equipment. The Trade Show runs from 1:00 – 6:00 PM and admission is free, but you must register.  During the day, we are offering a range of seminars for all levels of technical abilities. Each seminar will be presented by industry production personnel with years of experience. Some workshops included (but not limited to): Audio basics, Digital Console Programming, Best practices for Microphone selection. Lighting Basics, LED fixture technology update,  LED color theory. Venues safety plans, Production and Stage Management, Planning your theatre space. Console programming sessions and set painting and prop construction. Sessions are being added and expanded, so check the web site for updates.   In addition, this year, our friends from CITT Alberta and their presenting partner Theatre Alberta along with WOW Lighting are bringing ETC professional trainers to town to teach two different console training sessions. There will be a mid-level session focusing on Enhanced Skills and a second session will be a masterclass in Busking for Live Entertainment. These will be held on March 26th and 27th respectively.  Please go to for ETC Class registration.  CITT Alberta has arranged for Jenny Knott, the Scenic Paint & Coating Product Manager at Rosco to come and teach a 2-part course on various scenic techniques. Day 1 will be a general class on CrystalGel and other coatings that is open to all. Day 2 will be an advanced class delving deeper into technique where participants will create a stained glass window. As Jenny says “Bring on the goop and let’s get creative.” These classes will run on March 27th and 28th. Following the seminars and tradeshow, we will be hosting a closing reception with some special guest speakers. More information to come!
