Show Running Crew (Shift/Fly Crew)

Save to Favorites

Des Moines Playhouse

  • 5 people are interested

This is the perfect opportunity to learn and experience what happens behind the scenes of a theatrical production. Crew members are responsible for any sound or special effects needed from backstage and for changing the set during scene breaks and at intermission. Crew members may also be called on to use the fly system to change scenery that is flown in from the ceiling. In addition, the shift crew is used to set furniture and large props both backstage and onstage before and during performances.

NOTE: Due to the pandemic, our 2020-21 Season has not yet been announced. Shows and dates, as well as any changes to volunteer practices, will be posted on our backstage volunteer page, https://www.dmplayhouse.com/volunteer/back-stage/
