MCHS Theater Stage Crew


Backstage

“Life’s a stage and we’re constantly changing the scenery.”

 

“Where’s my hair? I’m on next.”

“The sky is stuck. We need a rope.”

“Line? Line?”
 

If you’ve ever been back stage during a theater production, you may have heard similar statements coming from actors and the stage crew. However, at the end of the day it seems as if the actors get most of the credit for a good (or not so good) production.

Our Unsung Theater Heroes – the Stage Crew

Our stage crew members work behind the scenes during all of our theatrical performances to ensure scene changes and other tasks are done correctly and at the right times. Stage crew members help with props, costume changes, scenery, make-up, sound, stage lights, house lights and even “raising the curtain.” They truly help run the show.

Each school year we invite MCHS students to learn how to stage a show through many disciplines. We have teachers who have worked professionally in theater who are experts in these various techniques and offer students a great opportunity for a hands-on learning experience.
