18: Tech, Tac, Toe

Theatre techies are often given a snub by the actors onstage. In community theatre the tech crew are may be thought of as those folks who come into the production late in the game and just slow down a couple rehearsals for the “real stars” of the show.  In some cases, the tech end of a show is almost an afterthought.  None of these things is, or should be true.

Fact is, good tech can usually make the difference between a really good show and one that leaves the audience scratching their heads, or worse, falling asleep in their seats.

In this episode, the Geeks talk about how theatre tech is as much a part of the show as the performances themselves, and why good tech is worth its weight in gold.
