The scenic construction crew assembles stock set pieces and builds new pieces as needed for each production. Crew should be able to comfortably work with a variety of hand tools and power tools, and be able to lift and carry up to 40 pounds. Those with creative painting skills then transform the pieces for the stage.
Crew Leaders work with the Production Manager to ensure that all the scenic elements are completed in a timely manner so the set can be painted and finished before load-in day. Tech nights for construction and painting are Mondays and Tuesdays, usually from 7:00pm to 9:00pm.
