Stage Crew: The Hidden Stars of Assemblies

By Bryce Hackworth

When I was behind the scenes I saw a lot of work. Scott Winn is in charge of lights, Haley Teslof is in charge of sound, and Colton Tomas is in charge of back stage.

“You pretty much just have to be able to fade the lights and flip switches up and down,” said Winn. Backstage they moved stuff on and off 3 or 4 times an assembly and they have to do 2 assemblies.

“With sound it is hard at first, you have to make sure the sure the sound is right and you have to do a bunch of music too,” said Teslof. “It’s hard work, but it is worth it,” Teslof said.
