Tech Crew Club
What We Will Be Doing(If Invited):
We will address different topics of tech crew. We will have
guest speakers and demonstrate equipment and discuss common tech crew positions such as sound engineer, microphone technician, lightboard, follow spot, stage hand and stage manager. Students will learn sound, light and stage cues and how to make cue books. We will tour the middle school theater space.
When We Meet:
March 15th 4:15-5:45 - stage management
March 22nd 4:15-5:45 - sound engineering
April 12th 4:15-5:45 - lighting design
Where We Meet:
Meet across from the chorus room in M Hall and we’ll move from there.
Please pick your student up in the car rider loop. Students will be directed there at the end of rehearsal.
Who Can Join:
Any interested SPMS student. We have a limited number of slots (about 32) that will fill up quickly.
How to Sign Up?
February 10th @ 7pm. A button was provided on the home page of this website. Tech Crew Club is full.
A Few Rules You Need to Know:
Be on time for all three meetings and stay until the end - attendance is the main factor when inviting club members to join Show Tech Crew! Participants are expected to show respect for other tech crew, cast, adults and volunteers at all times. Inappropriate conduct can be cause for dismissal. Cell phones / electronic devices for tech crew club should be turned off and out of sight during the entire length of every meeting. Club members are not permitted to roam the halls or leave the premises of the school. Please wear comfortable attire appropriate for moving equipment, etc. and closed toed shoes.
The middle school has many more students interested in being part of show tech crew than there are positions available! For the spring musical, we will fill 18-20 show tech crew positions from the Tech Crew Club membership. Slots will be offered to Tech Crew Club members in good standing (perfect attendance, behavior, attitude); the placement decision will be made by the Club Coordinator in partnership with the Show Stage Manager/guest speakers. Unfortunately there is a strong likelihood that some very motivated, capable, well-behaved students will not be offered show tech crew slots for this season but they will have priority placement for next year's spring musical.
If you are selected for Show Tech Crew, there are mandatory tech week rehearsals and an additional mandatory fee of $35 to cover incidentals such as show t-shirt, poster, cast party, etc. will be collected. You can indicate your interest and availability for Show Tech Crew for the spring musical while signing up for Tech Crew Club.
