Set Building

Behind every performance lies what could be the most important yet least rewarding task of every successful show. The actors may get the headlines, but the set itself and the work backstage is what makes the scene. One important but difficult task, is building the set.

It takes good stage management to accomplish the task. Set building is a challenging role that requires great organizational and team skills. Complex shows often require hard work and dedication with a lot of time for the tasks required to keep the show running from night to night.
