Here is a must-have book for anyone producing a stage show without a Broadway-sized budget. Written by a technical theatre veteran, The Perfect Stage Crew explains the pitfalls to avoid and provides solutions to the most common — and the most complex — stage performance problems, even for theatres with a lack of resources. An invaluable guide for middle and high school theatres, college theatres, and community theatres, The Perfect Stage Crew teaches you how to:

• Stock, organize, and store the essential backstage supplies
• Conceptualize, design, and build sets
• Manage a stage crew effectively
• Paint scenery and backdrops
• Test, design, and hang lighting
• Operate and repair sound equipment
• Set cues
• Promote your show

This expanded second edition covers up-to-date technology, including for use with recording, sound, and lighting. Chapters also cover such crucial topics as running technical rehearsals, gathering props, and creating and selling tickets. Theatre groups that need to learn the nuts and bolts of putting a show together will discover how to turn backstage workers into The Perfect Stage Crew.
