Behind the Scenes Team

"FRIENDS SPEND TIME WITH YOU, BUT TRUE FRIENDS PICK UP TINSEL WITH YOU"

Volunteer hours: Between 100 and 120 a season

Duties:

  • Assist with rehearsals (be on book, manage props/ prop lists, take down blocking)

  • work as stage crew or costume crew for at least one of our productions

  • assist with set strike and show changeovers

 

Benefits:

  • Gain first hand experience in a rehearsal process while working with some of our area's best actors and directors

  • Workshops for apprentices in acting, technical theatre and marketing/the business of theatre

  • Participate in the apprentice showcase performance

  • Apprentice parties and social events

  • Earn volunteer hours

  •  Apprentices will also receive a free ticket to each production, pending seating availability.

 

Commitments:

  • Apprenitces commit to serving on crew for at least one production each season. (Please note, apprentices will not be assigned to the crew of show in which they are performing.)

  • Attend at least 12 of the pre-tech week rehearsals in addition to all of tech week and all of the performances for that specific production.

  • Apprentices will also attend 5 strikes (one of which is the strike for your specific production).

  • Apprentices will be assigned to strike shifts at the beginning of the season.

  • All apprentices are also required to attend our end of year event on December 19 from 1-4pm.

 

Make up policy: These productions depend on our crew apprentices to run smoothly. Attendance is mandatory.

  • Any absence must be cleared with the artistic director at least 5 hours in advance of the start of the shift.

  • If an absence is excused (illness, death in the family,...), Apprentices may make up those hours by attending ushering shifts as determined by the artistic director.

  • To make up a strike shift, Apprentices must swap a strike commitment with another crew apprentice, so that shift is covered.

  • Unexcused absences, and those not cleared in advance, will result in an immediate dismissal from the apprentice program.

  • Apprentices will not be able to participate in workshops or social events until all make up shifts have been completed.

Mandatory dates for crew by show:

(note, crew members are also required to attend 12 additional rehearsals in addition to the dates listed below).
