Playcrafters of Bellport
How would you like to be part of one of our productions? As theater is such a collaborative art, there are lots of critical tasks necessary to put on a successful show. You could be part of one of our productions.
Below is a list of the positions and a brief description of what they entail. If you are interested in becoming involved, even if you have no experience, give me a call. Let’s talk about it.
PRODUCER: If you are organized and are good at paying attention to details (and what mother or father isn't?), this is the title for you. The Producer coordinates all the other activities and keeps in touch with the director to make sure everything is proceeding smoothly.
COSTUMES: Do you have a sense of fashion and like to put clothes together? You would work with the Director to interpret each character’s role through what they are wearing. Being able to sew is a plus.
SET DESIGN & DECORATION: Do you like interior design and have a good sense of color? Are you an artist? By working with the Director, you would help decide what color the walls are, what kind of furniture is needed and generally create an environment.
SET CONSTRUCTION: Do you like to work with your hands and do "projects?" Do you like to work with wood or paint? We need you, whether you have tools or not.
LIGHTING: Do you want to learn something new? Lighting is the art of “painting” with light to create mood and texture for the play.
SOUND: You would be working with the Director to choose the music and sound effects needed to set the right mood for different parts of the play.
MAKE-UP: You would work with the actors to create the proper “look” they need for their characters.
PROPS: Are you the type of person who likes to go to yard sales or likes to search for odd pieces of “stuff?” You would help to find those perfect things that the actors use to make the play “real.”
STAGE MANAGER: Are you organized and like to work with people? The Stage Manager works closely with the Director and the actors to keep things flowing during rehearsals and the show.
If you are interested in any of these volunteer jobs, you don't have to have any experience. We will teach you by having you work with one of our experienced people. If you are not sure if this is for you, let’s talk. Call me. I can fill you in and answer questions. BOB KAPLAN, Member of the Board 631-929-3042 or mediamanbob1@gmail.com
