No, it's not bad at all! but if you think it's an easy job & just fun - it's not!
Some shows are paid better than others, some have a heavier workload.
If you love the job it's worth the pay!
Props are dealt with by Stage Management.
Scenery/set changes/flying pieces by Stage Crew.
Where do you live? Do you have a local Theatre? It might be worth while seeing if your local theatre is taking on any casual crew, or if any local Am Dram groups need a hand, ask around and get some experience, see if you like it before giving up your day job!
pm me if you want.
What about the pre-production, fit-ups and tech. period? That where the techies really show their mettle. Run of show is the easy bit. A showman does not a good techie make - usually very little knowledge of relevant legislation, licensing and insurance issues. All part of my world - admittedly a dull part. There's a lot more to being a tech than following a cue sheet. Who made up the cue sheet for starters?
