The Women in Theatre Roadshow is a collaboration between The Lir Academy and the Abbey Theatre which aims to introduce young women to careers in lighting, sound and stage management.
The purpose of the roadshow is to engage female pupils from secondary level schools throughout Ireland by presenting and facilitating workshops geared towards increasing awareness of technical theatre, stage management and the importance that these departments play in the professional creation of a live performance.
