Stage Crew

CATCO has opportunities for individuals to get involved working behind the scenes on our productions. Stage Crew members work in the control booth or backstage, acting as light board operators, sound board operators, props runners, assistant stage managers, dressers, and stage hands. Some experience in technical theatre is very helpful, but not absolutely necessary.

There is a substantial time commitment, as well as a modest paycheck.

Stage Crew members commit to four-to-six weeks of rehearsal and performances, including most evenings Wednesday through Sunday.

The first 10 days of each show is our “Tech week,” and Stage Crew members will work long hours to get the show ready for performance. The typical tech schedule is:
Tuesday-Friday 6:30pm-11:00pm
Saturday-Sunday 1:00pm-11:00pm (with dinner break, of course)
Once the show is in performance, we usually produce Thursday-Saturday evenings, Sundays can be matinee and/or evening performances, and we perform several Wednesday morning shows.

Stage Crew members have the opportunity to meet new people, and will enjoy the camaraderie of working together with all of our artists and technicians to create the magic that our patrons see each night.
