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.

First Meeting Today!

Today the BHS Stage Crew had it's first meeting of the 2010-2011 school year. It was a quick introductory meeting, ran by Tori Carrabino and Chris LaRocque. The purpose of the meeting was to get contact information from the crew members, as well as outline the requirements and expectations for each and every crew member.

We also introduced two new ideas for this year's crew; regular stage crew meetings, and regular booth crew training.

Every week the Booth Crew will meet on Mondays to learn the skills necessary to run a full show. Up until this year, Booth Crew had largely been dependent on the skills and knowledge of purely one sound technician, and one lightboard operator. With these new meetings we hope to 1) Train the next generation of Booth Crew as certain members leave, and 2) Gain more people who are able to operate the systems, so that we will have someone available in any and all situations.

Stage Crew will meet every other Wednesday to learn EVERYTHING about the theater, with the exception of lights and sound. The purpose of these meetings is to make Stage Crew more efficient and educated so that setting up for a show, running a show, and maintaining the Fogelberg are done in a quick and professional manner.
