Alright, rant time.
As a singer and actor, I have nothing but the highest respect for the people who work behind the scenes of musicals, plays, etc. It really pisses me off when I hear about performers ******** on the backstage people as if what they do isn't important. Things like building sets, working in the sound booth, and working on lighting are difficult things to do, and if you piss of the people that do these things, they can have a bigger impact on your performance than anything else.

TL;DR: Don't piss off the backstage people.

I've volunteered at a theatre in Cambridge for a weekend and backstage work is no easy task. It irks me when people think they can disrespect others just because they have a "lower" job.

No offense, this is an honest question. In school and at certain shows that I've attended, the tech guys seem a little antisocial. perhaps on the autistic side even. Do you notice this?

I used to be a tech guy at my school.
I don't really notice it...
I mean, I myself might be a tad "antisocial" (meh, that's just how I am) but all the other tech people had loads of friends and did a lot of things other than tech stuff. There wasn't even any falling out between tech and performers... We all liked eachother.

I have played music in a fair few shows and productions and I always made a point not to piss off the backstage crew, they have a lot more power than they let on.

I can agree with you on this. There is no solo in theater, everything must work together or else it turns out ****. I've been in a few plays in high school and did backstage, pit band, and even a pretty good role in a few plays which one was a musical It was funny because the pit band had to lower an octave because I sang so low.

as someone who does stage crew every year i am so glad to hear this, every year we have these people basically thinking we are not important at all.
we do all we can to make everything go right, from the curtains to the set to the lights and its hard as hell, and even our last show they wanted to cut the crew from the normal 10+ to just 4 because they felt we crowded everything and we could do even better with few of us.
we have even been left out of the year book before because we weren't viewed as important as the actors
(stage crew experience for 4 plus years)

Yeah, I did stage crew for a concert a few weeks back. There was a lot more to it than I thought.

As a person who works backstage, i can confirm that most (emphasizing most here, meaning not all) are completely ******* retarded. In highschool, one ******** knocked half the standing set over, because they couldnt handle lifting the door handle just a little to open the door.

TL;DR: Actors are stupid. and Don't piss of the backstage people.

I was a theater kid in high school not the best singer but I was good sometimes we always gave credit and respect to the people back stage because no matter if you're acting or teching, you're always considered one of us, plus we always get a long

I mostly sing and want to get into acting, and did a semester of set design. One of the funnest classes I've ever taken. Lot of work goes into it though.

As a "techie"  (as my schools fine arts department called the tech theatre students)  I approve of this.

I completely agree. I'm a singer and actor myself. I wish more people would understand that the tech crew is what makes any show fantastic, and they deserve the utmost respect.
