Applicants must be, at least, 13+ old and have participated in a minimum of one production with OCCT. Each production we select one individual who is: task oriented, organized, communicative and interested in stage managing. The position is a time commitment and applicants must be able to attend the following events: tech week and all performances. Applicants should have open availability for rehearsals, but OCCT can work around minimal conflicts.
RUNNING CREW (backstage):
The running crew makes up the majority of our crew. These individuals are orchestrating the scene changes during the show and moving set pieces from one location to another. Before the show begins they're reporting to the stage manager, checking that set pieces and props are in the correct place and helping with general setup around the house. Being a part of the running crew requires: patience, focus and the ability to follow directions.
TECHNICAL CREW (Light Board/ Sound Board/ Microphone/ Spotlight Operators):
The technical crew, in comparison is a crew of three-four individuals. During the run of the show there will be one individual running the light board, sound board, spotlight and microphone panel. The space holding this equipment is very small and will not hold more than three people comfortably. These positions are highly technical and assigned on a seniority basis to participants who have previously worked on our running or booth crews. Being a part of the booth crew is for individuals with high attention spans, quick reflexes and the ability to follow directions.
