Without a script, there would be no plays. Without lighting, the plays would not be seen. Whether it's
discreet and naturalistic or dazzling and imaginative, the lighting is absolutely integral to a
production. The Drama Club Lighting Team works with the Director to create the right lighting to portray the scene. Some opportunities include programming and working the light board which controls the rigging lighting.
The Follow Spot Operator's job is to track the actor(s) as they move around the stage while the rest of the stage is in darkness, creating a powerful effect and one not easily achieved by the use of rigged lights. The technicians also hang lights on and off stage when special effects are needed.
