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.
