Light Board Operator
Des Moines Playhouse
During dress rehearsals and performances, the Light Board Operator runs the computerized light board to properly light the performances. The Stage Manager will give the Board Operator the cue to go to the next light cue. The board itself is simple to run: In most cases a button marked "GO" is pressed when the Stage Manager says, "Go!" A commitment to teamwork is necessary.
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/
