The dates have been announced the dates for Orbital Sound's annual Easter 'Sound Fundamentals for Theatre' training course.

The course, from 7-10 April is to take place at its purpose-built Brixton training facility.

Over 500 students have already passed through what has become the industry's de facto theatre sound training programme, helping to prepare technical theatre and theatre sound students for careers in live entertainment.

The Sound Fundamentals for Theatre course combines essential theory with practical skills, catering for a wide cross-section of skill levels. Students are typically drawn from the UK’s leading drama schools, as well as freelancers and corporate sector technicians. Organised by Orbital Sound's training co-ordinator Alex Waddle, the course is led by Richard Carter and supported by Technical Director Bill Addison.

Over the 4 days, students are also given the opportunity to try out some of the latest audio equipment, with participation from leading brands such as Yamaha Commercial Audio, Shure, d&b audiotechnik, Flare Audio, Nemesis, Q-Lab and CSC. The week ends with a chance to go backstage on a major West End musical, giving the students the opportunity to see first-hand what goes into a professional production.

For 2015, the course content encompasses dedicated modules on:

• Theatre fundamentals, key concepts and system elements
