Stage Crew

Students in the Stage Crew elective learn to manage the equipment in the Auditorium, including the lighting and sound systems.  They help when Palms has its own shows as well as when other schools use the Palms auditorium for their own shows or ceremonies.

When there isn't a show, Stage Crew members help make repairs and improvements around school, learning skills such as carpentry, electrical work, and computer maintenance. They use a variety of tools, from hammers and screwdrivers to saws and drills, and supplies from glue to sandpaper to duct tape. Whether the problem is a faulty stage light, a drill with broken wiring, or a table that wobbles, they learn what to do about it. Each day brings new tasks and each task brings new opportunities to learn and practice hands-on skills.

Stage crew students are typically 7th and 8th graders. Although 6th graders are eligible for Stage Crew, their schedules usually don't permit it.
