Technical Theatre Experiences

Each semester, we offer work calls for students to assist with painting, set, lights, sound, projections, run crew, and many more technical theatre opportunities. No experience required, we are all here to learn.

Backstage Crew & Work, contact Professor Rothenberg JARothenberg@qcc.cuny.edu

Stage Managers & Ushers, contact Professor Rothenberg JARothenberg@qcc.cuny.edu

Ushers see productions for FREE. Arrive 45 minutes before the play begins and check in with the house manager who will give you duties to assist the audience in finding their seats, receiving their programs, finding the restroom, etc. Ushers may also guard areas that the audience should not access, such as backstage space. Ushers must be dressed in our department dress code of white top, black bottoms. You are representing our department. A friendly and welcoming demeanor is important for the audience to feel invited into the world of the play.
