Followspot Operator

Save to Favorites

Des Moines Playhouse

  • 8 people are interested

A great way to get introduced to the theatre is by being on the followspot crew. This crew operates the followspots which are used primarily in musical productions. Working with the light board operator and stage manager, you take your "cues" from the stage manager as to when and where your spot is used. And yes, the master electrician will provide training on how to run the instrument.

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/
