Crew Questions and Answers

Q.  What is Crew?
A.  Crew is the term that describes the group of people/students who work on the technical side of theatre.  The crew builds the sets, organizes the props, organizes the costumes, moves sets during the show, helps with lights and sound, and manages the stage action.  Being on crew is an incredibly educational experience, as members are taught to use power tools and often given lots of leadership experience.  They are also allowed to be very artistic in design and painting, and learn great organizational techniques.

Q.  What are crew interviews?
A.  Crew interviews are simply the process through which Bexley "auditions" its crew.  If you show up, you won't necessary earn a place on crew.  We will place you based on experience, talent, responsibility, and work ethic.   Because crew uses power tools, we cannot have too many students on crew.  It simply isn't safe.  However, we do strive to utilize as many students as possible.

At crew interviews, each student will fill out a form stating what experience he/she has with power tools and leadership, as well as what area he/she would like to go into (management, set, costumes, light, sound, props).  He or she then talks to the director and tech director, is placed into the area he/she fits, and given a crew schedule.

Q.  Who leads/teaches the crew and makes the schedules?
A.  The theatre department hires tech directors for every major show.  These tech directors are responsible for designing the set, buying materials, leading the builds, assigning run crew positions, managing the crew during the show, and running strike.  These are always respected individuals who are skilled in both technical theatre and management/leadership.  They are responsible for creating the crew schedule.

Q.  How can I/my student join crew?
A.  Attend crew interview.  For more information, you can go to any Thespian or Jr. Thespian meeting, or talk to Ms. Rhinehart or any of the Tech Directors or Assistant Tech Directors.
