In any event which involves a group of people, there are always some people who are more visible than others. So if “treading the boards” (acting) is not for you but you want to get involved then consider the work that goes on behind the scenes.
We all see the actors on stage, and maybe you get a glimpse of the Director who usually acknowledges the sound and lighting engineers with a wave of a hand as they lurk in the lighting box. Without the dedicated band of Techies, along with stage management, set/prop builders, costume, and the make-up personnel, the amazing shows we produce would, well, not be amazing.
But there are many in the crowd of unsung heroes who are always there for us? And very important they are too! None of our shows would ever hit the stage without them.
These are just some of jobs people do behind the scenes.
To all these people, and to all the ones I’ve forgotten to mention:
We couldn’t do it without you!
