Burlington High School Stage Crew

A student group at Burlington High School that is committed to 1) providing a professional technical crew for Burlington High School's Fogelberg Performing Arts Center, 2) cleaning and organizing the stage, its accompanying spaces, and its technical systems, and 3) ensuring knowledgeable students can assist teachers, faculty, and out of school groups in the use of the center's full capabilities.

A Post from Outgoing Stage Manager Kevin Parker

If there is a single legacy I want to leave at BHS as I graduate, it is Stage Crew. Stage Crew has come such a long way since I joined it freshman year. From a ragtag bunch of untrained students moving set pieces around for the musical, to a highly trained group of near-professionals who work for all sorts of events in the high school, Stage Crew has really jumped leaps and bounds, especially this past year. It is truly astounding how the students in Stage Crew are so enthusiastic and excited about the work we do. I have put a lot of effort into making Stage Crew a club that will continue to grow and perform even more functions at BHS, while remaining a professional, enthusiastic group of students. But now I'm graduating. I can't be the one to make Stage Crew last through the years. That is on the shoulders of next year's stage manager, and the stage manager after that, and the stage manager after that, and so on. However, I have confidence that next year's Stage Manager Victoria Carrabino will inspire the Stage Crew to work hard and dedicate themselves, and will train a new Stage Manager who will do just as well. I want to thank Tori for all her hard work this yearas my Assistant Stage Manager making Stage Crew what it is today , and thank her in advance for continuing my legacy at BHS next year. I also want to thank Chris LaRocque for his work in the club, and Mr. Middleton for his support of the group and for proposing Stage Crew become an official school club.

I am pleased to announce next year's Stage Crew Core Crew:

Stage Manager: Victoria Carrabino
Booth Chief: Christopher LaRocque
Assistant Stage Manager: Samuel Coté

Lighting Specialist: Jonathan DiRusso
Sound Specialist: Christopher LaRocque

The postions of Rigging Specialist and Construction Specialist are currently vacant.

Thank you to all Stage Crew members. You are what will keep this club alive.

Kevin Parker
