Thank you for your interest in getting involved with Construction and Set Design. Below are some frequently asked questions that may assist you in your decision.

What will I be doing?

If you are interested in Set Design you will have to start on the production you are interested in generally, three months before the show goes up. You will work with and under the direction of Nate Grey in the creation of the design. But the work doesn't end there! Now the creation has to be built!

For Construction you will have a myriad of tasks that will need to be performed. You will be involved in building the set with hand tools and power tools. There will be extensive amount of lifting and moving objects.

What if I have never used a power tool?

No problem! Not every job will require you to use a power tool. However if you are willing to learn we will train you.

How much of a time commitment is there?

Construction really begins in earnest when the previous show has been struck. Work is primarily on Saturdays beginning at 9:00 am and going all day. If you are available during the week to help, that would be great! We will also be working some Sundays too depending up rehearsal schedule. The Saturday before tech is usually a rather involved day in finishing up large tasks, painting and dressing the set.

Tech week starts the Sunday before the show opens. Sometimes we will be finishing up construction projects during tech week so this week is on an as needed basis. Once the show opens, we get to sit back and enjoy the show. Our job is done!

More questions?

Simply fill out the form below and we will get back to you as quickly as we can! Thanks again for your interest in Construction and Set Design. We believe the Set Design and Construction crew is an integral part of theater, and we don't acknowledge the Sound crew is the best tech crew in the theater!  :)
