TECH CREW DESCRIPTIONS
Below you will find a description for each crew on our technical team.
The publicity crew is responsible for publicizing the show, including the making of posters and commercials, as well as finding corporate sponsors for the show. This crew will require time outside of school to find sponsors – you do this by approaching local businesses and offering them spots in our program in exchange for a monetary donation. This crew also hangs the posters around school. Creativity and people skills are definite pluses for this position!
The backstage crew is responsible for bringing set and props pieces on and offstage during the run of the show. Crew members must be able to lift heavy items (with help) and move quickly and quietly. Backstage crew members are required to attend all tech and dress rehearsals, as well as all show nights. If you have a conflict with one of those evenings, we ask that you do not apply for this position for this show. On show nights, backstage crew members must dress in black from head to toe – no other colors, even shoes.
About the Show
When an overworked mother and her teenage daughter magically swap bodies, they have just one day to put things right again. Freaky Friday, a new musical based on the celebrated novel by Mary Rodgers and the hit Disney films, is a heartfelt, comedic, and unexpectedly emotional update on an American classic. By spending a day in each other's shoes, Katherine and Ellie come to appreciate one another's struggles, learn self-acceptance, and realize the immeasurable love and mutual respect that bond a mother and daughter.
