TH 235 Stage Crew Practicum Open Seats (Counts for Honors Experience)

Posted by Tim on August 20, 2019 in Academics, Honors Experiences

The UB Department of Theatre and Dance is seeking deck(stage) crew, fly crew, and dressers for their productions this semester.  This is a 1- to 2-credit opportunity in the 7-week course TH235, so the add/drop date is not until mid-October.  It also counts as an Honors experience, and it is a fulfilling way to potentially give your GPA a boost. 

The pre/co-requisites are:

TH106 (Intro to Technical Theatre) or significant prior theatrical experience (like high school stage crew or CFA stagehand work)

Attendance is 100% mandatory for this course, so you will need to check your schedules meticulously to ensure you are fully available for at least 1 full show’s set of rehearsals and performances. “Guys and Dolls” has one “on school time” performance in the mid-morning, but you will receive as many excusal letters as needed for that morning.  The full schedule of dates and times for each show can be found at https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-JgLaGcF6KBU1lRa0dpems4bE0zaXhmLTRGTHduU09HUnZV/view?usp=sharing

Please let me know if you have any questions about registration, scheduling, responsibilities, or anything else you may think of.  If you are interested, please email me at hswollan@buffalo.edu with your name, major, and a brief description of any prior theatre experience you have, including whether you’ve taken TH106.
