LLT offers sound training

Sound effects and music are crucial to theatre, establishing mood and helping to tell the story.

Sound effects and music are crucial to theatre, establishing mood and helping to tell the story. Here’s your chance to find out how.

Ladysmith Little Theatre (LLT) is offering a training program for volunteers to learn everything necessary to design sound for community theatre. Trainees will put knowledge into action as apprentice sound designers in an upcoming show.

The first step is to attend an introductory workshop Saturday, Oct. 18 from 10 a.m. to noon at the theatre at 4985 Christie Rd.

After the workshop, participants begin a personalized sound design course by taking online lessons to be completed at home on their own schedule. Sound operation training and hands-on work are also included. No  experience is needed.

The lessons and training program were developed by Gale Lawrence, a former lawyer whose long-time interest in radio production eventually led to a volunteer position at LLT in 2009. Her work has twice been awarded Best Sound Design in Theatre BC’s South Island Zone Festival.

There is no charge, but pre-registration is required by contacting info@ladysmiththeatre.com or 250-924-0658.
