Tech Crew can be a fun job but also requires a lot of responsibility - just like being an actor. In addition, being a member of tech crew requires the ability to work independently, be organized, and pay close attention to detail. Members of Tech Crew will usually come to a few rehearsals early on, then start coming to all rehearsals during the last two to three weeks before the performances. Tech Crew (lights, sound, backstage, hair and makeup) will be required for all mandatory rehearsals listed on the Rehearsal Calendar.
Costume Crew has a different schedule, and meets weekly based on student conflicts.
Advertising Crew meets just one day in late October.
Ushers are only needed at their assigned performance.
8th graders who have done tech crew before may be considered for the role of Stage Manager. It's a big job! They are in charge of backstage crew and making sure the show runs smoothly. Stage managers need to be student leaders with past experience on tech crew. Select 6th and 7th graders who are interested in learning specifics of the responsibilities of the Stage Manager may be considered for an Assistant Stage Manager position.
