Backstage Crew Opportunities
 
Participation in backstage crew is open to all students and community members. Crew members are an essential part of the production team and serve as stagehands, dressers, make-up technicians, lighting operators, and audio/video technicians. No prior experience is required.
The department of theater does a season of four or five productions each year. We typically do one musical and one straight play each semester. Occasionally we do productions in the summer.
Course Credit
 
Backstage crews are made up of students in the following courses:
  • TA141A Theater Crew: Scenic
  • TA141B Theater Crew: Costume
  • TA141C Theater Crew: Lighting
  • TA141D Theater Crew: Audio/Video
  • TA141E Theater Crew: Makeup
Students may also participate in backstage crews as a part of our other courses in design and production, such as:
  • TA41 Lighting Design
  • TA42 Costume Design
  • TA142C Scenic Production C
  • TA163 Costume Sewing, Production, and Wardrobe
Schedule and Attendance
Crew members attend all technical and dress rehearsals and participate in every performance of the show that they are assigned to. Typically, students are assigned to only one show per semester. Since each crew member fulfills a unique role in the production, attendance at all rehearsals and performances is critical. Please review the schedule below for rehearsal and performance times. These schedules are preliminary and may differ slightly from the actual rehearsal schedules. What appears below is presented only as an example for the purpose of helping people assess their ability to participate.
If you are interested in getting involved, contact Professor M. Scott Grabau.
