Light Hanging Crew

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Des Moines Playhouse

  • 6 people are interested

Prior to a show's opening, each light instrument must be hung in a specific location, focused in a particular direction, colored with a specific color, and plugged into a power source. The lighting crew assists with this process by moving lighting instruments and focusing them as directed by the lighting designer or master electrician. Hand tools are used and, in most cases, it is necessary to climb ladders in order to reach the instruments. Teamwork, initiative, and an ability to follow instructions are basic requirements. Oh...and climbing tall ladders isn't out of the question!

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/
