Spotlight Operator

Whether picking up Slash for a wicked guitar solo or following Kristin Chenoweth as she belts a glory note, the spotlight operator’s primary responsibility is to highlight the focal person or persons on stage. A followspot serves to direct the audience’s attention and fill in the gaps of the stage lighting.

Director

Like a film director, the stage director supervises both the performance and technical aspects of a production. He or she has the artistic spirit of a designer, the methodical mind of a technician, and a poetic soul.
