Not all theatre happens under the spotlights.
There are many ways to get involved and not have to be a performer!
Experience or No Experience, help is always welcome. Below are just some of the behind the scenes opportunities.
Run Crew Also known as Stage Hands, This is the perfect opportunity to see what happens behind the scenes of a theatrical production. Crew members may help create the special effects needed from backstage, change the set between scenes and during intermission, set the props, assist with costume changes, and work the fly rail system. This is a great way to be a part of an exciting live performance without being on stage.
Costume Construction Costume volunteers are instrumental in building costumes and putting the finishing touches on projects. Anyone who wants to learn to sew or craft—from simple alterations to full-scale constructions—can easily become involved. Give as much or as little time as your schedule allows.
Set Construction Volunteers who enjoy building and painting are great for this area! These volunteers assist the Technical Director with constructing and painting the set. Set construction is a great place to learn some basic carpentry and painting skills.
Light Board Operator The light board operator is the person in charge of running the computerized lighting console. This person works directly with the Director and Lighting Designer to ensure all of the lighting cues are executed on time. Training on how to use the light board will be provided. It is as simple as the push of a button!
Prop Construction Props are anything that is not an actor or part of the set! Sometimes a particular prop has to be modified or built from scratch to fit the needs of the show.
And other opportunities vary depending on the needs of the show.
