The Nottingham New Theatre

Sound Design

For a typical season sound design comprises both compiling sound effects and the composition of original scores. Shows will vary in their requirements, but there will always be plenty of opportunity to get involved.

Our sound design is all developed in house, and encompasses both composition and digital mixing. Our speaker set-up offers an impressive and non-restrictive soundstage and in a typical season there will be many opportunities for sound designers to tackle a multitude of exciting and varied designs.

How to get involved?

Your committee contact for all technical matters is Zoe Smith, you can email her at to find out about training and to register your interest.

The best way to get involved with this role is at the beginning of the season, during the Season Launches, by having a chat with shows you’re interested in working on. Unfilled roles will be advertised to all technicians after this.
