Creative Norwich students offered a taste of life behind the theatre curtain at an arts expo.
More than 20 level three production arts students from City College Norwich (CCN) unveiled a series of interactive exhibits as part of their first Technical Arts Expo (TXPO) earlier this week.
The event, which took place at Norwich Theatre Royal, featured an array of demonstrations, live music, performances and art installations.
Each exhibit was based on production disciplines, including sound, lighting, stage management and prop and costume design.
They included a handmade Lord of the Rings inspired helmet and a scaled down automated model of a West End production of Sweeney Todd.
Among the students was Calum Walker, 18, from Lowestoft.
He said: “When you work in theatre or events I think a lot of emphasis goes to the main show and not particularly to the people who are working on the technical side of things so it has been great to show off our creative abilities.”
