Flyman

Flys, not flies, refer to the permanent weighted batten systems in theatrical venues that are used to raise and lower scenery and electrics on stage. To fly something in or out is to raise or lower an object on deck via this system. Many theaters have made the conversion to automated flys that use motors or chain hoists, but manual structures are still the most prevalently used.

House Manager

The house manager is chiefly responsible for the care, comfort, and safety of the audience during every live performance at a show venue. This person is a supervisor over all departments related to the front of house operations and works closely with the stage manager.

Props Technician

An individual in the props department is part artist and part technician; this job requires the creative talent of a painter and the mechanical know-how of a carpenter. The props tech is a treasure-hunter and master craftsman who applies considerable skills to the visual interest of a play, film, or television show. 

Prop Master

A sword hanging on the wall is a set decoration, but a sword in an actor’s hand is a prop. The person responsible for scavenging and creating the dozens (even hundreds) of props for a stage production is the prop master.
