About this Campaign
With our growing theatre department, we are finding the need to have headsets and more technology than we currently have. With the purchase of headsets, we can give students the opportunity to be stage managers and assistant stage managers up in the theatre booth and backstage. We would also be able to put certain students on spot lights being able to execute light commands when called.
Theatre tech headsets are needed so that teachers and students in the tech booth can communicate with stage managers, tech crew, and other teachers backstage. These would be used during tech rehearsals and during productions so that that shows could run seamlessly. Currently there is no system and tools in place for this form of communication and if any need arose, someone would have to go out of the booth, down the hallway, through a classroom, and into backstage. The only other way for someone to get backstage would be for someone to go onto the stage interrupting a performance.
These headsets would streamline the rehearsal process and performance. This technology would also be a tool to teach the tech students how stage managers, assistant stage managers, and crew communicate during a professional performance.
Currently, teachers are using their own personal cellphones to text and communicate with backstage and the light booth. This isn't easy or the best manner in which to communicate during rehearsal and definitely during a performance. With a complete set of high quality headsets, students and staff can utilize the appropriate manner to communicate with each other. Also with appropriate good quality equipment, these headsets should last and allow us to have the equipment for the program to continue to grow.
