|Award For Theatre Technician At The Questors|
Ben Sandford is the Production Director in Ealing
The Association of British Theatre Technicians have announced that their annual award for Technician of the Year for 2013 has gone to Ben Sandford, Production Director at The Questors Theatre in Ealing.
This is the first time that the ABTT has specifically given this award to a technician from the amateur sector.
ABTT chairman Mark White commented, "In awarding Ben this honour, the ABTT acknowledges excellence in theatre technology in the amateur sector, reflecting the increasing number of members from that sector who join the ABTT."
Ben Sandford said, "It is a great honour to receive this award. It recognises the hard work of all the volunteer stage crews, designers and technicians not only at The Questors Theatre but at other amateur companies around the country."
Ben has been a member of The Questors Theatre since 2007, during which time he has been responsible for lighting design, set design, sound design and stage management for many productions. He studied Theatre Technical Production at Toronto's Ryerson University, and alongside his responsibilities as Production Director, Ben is currently busy designing the lighting for On the Razzle at The Questors Theatre in mid-July.
