Technical Requirements

For any show at the Compass Theatre, we need the Technical Requirements notified to the Senior Technical Team no later than six weeks prior to your get-in date. This is to ensure that all licensing permissions are in place, and also to allow us to discuss any potential issues with you. The best way to discuss your technical needs is by an email to:

Things to note

GUNS (firearms) on stage - clarification
As a venue we (Compass Theatre) need to know about the use of any type of gun (firearm) on stage (toy guns included), the only exception is wooden props. The main reason for this is to establish if we (Compass Theatre) need to advise you to gain permission for the use of the gun (firearm).

  • A gun (firearm) that is a plastic toy and is not to be used to fire anything (including the toy caps), we as the venue still need to be made aware of this, and make it clear on the technical return that it is a NON-FIRING toy; this will mean that we do not need specific permission to be granted.
  • If the gun is going to be used to fire blanks, or toy caps then we (Compass Theatre) must know about this a minimum of 4 weeks prior to the show so that if specific permission may be sought.
