Please only apply for a crew position if you are able to commit to the following:

All crew meembers are required to 

  • Be self-motivated and follow directions well
  • Have reliable transportation

It is preferable that crew members volunteer for the entire technical rehearsal and performance process.  If that is not possibly, for the consistency and quality of the show, you must sign up for most of the technical rehearsals and at least half of the performances.  Applicants who can work the full schedule will be given preference. Our crew members are assigned specific duties, which they learn during a one to two week technical rehearsal period.  They continue to fulfill those duties during the three to four week run of the show.   To achieve the best possible show quality, we must have a crew that is well trained and consistent.  Crew assignments are a vital part of the production.  ALSO, when the final schedule is posted, we need you to stay true to the dates you have committed to.  It is VERY hard to replace you on last minute or without notice.  In most cases, volunteers must be 16 or olderto participate as backstage crew.  All volunteers should have relaible transportation.

Theatre Memphis stages will be dark from January-November 2020, so there are no open backstage crew positions at this time.  There will still be much going on at the theatre as we renovate the building, beautify current spaces, and reorganize our production inventory and props/scenery/costume storage areas.  We'll need volunteer help workdays, nights, and weekends.  Specific opportunities will be listed as they become available. - See more details here.
