Stage Crew

Stage Crew members work in the control booth or backstage, acting as light board operators, sound board operators, props runners, assistant stage managers, dressers, and stage hands. Some experience in technical theatre is very helpful, but not absolutely necessary. There is a substantial time commitment but there is also a modest stipend.

Stage Crew members commit to four to six weeks of rehearsal and performances, including most evenings Wednesday through Sunday.

The week prior to previews and opening are “tech week” in which Stage Crew members work side by side with directors, designers and actors to set technical elements for the production.  The typical tech schedule is:

  • Tuesday-Friday | 6:30 – 11 pm
  • Saturday-Sunday | 1 – 11 pm [with dinner break]

Once the show is in performance, we usually produce Thursday-Saturday evenings, Sundays can be matinee and/or evening performances, and we perform several Wednesday morning shows.

Stage Crew members have the opportunity to meet new people, and will enjoy the camaraderie of working together with all of our artists and technicians to create the magic that our patrons see each night.

  • Lighting Technicians for the hang and focus of each show’s lighting plot.
