Tech Crew

The technical crew, often known as “techies” are the students behind the scenes and “backstage” to control all the technical aspects of creating a concert, play, musical, or other live performance. The roles of the students in a tech crew can vary depending on the nature of an event, and often evolves as the production does. The technical crew is in charge of operating the lights and controlling the volume of the sounds and music. In large scale production, the tech crew can consist of many students in different aspects of the production.
