National players

The National Players are a self-sustaining ensemble, therefore every player helps build, strike, and pack each set into our box truck. The ensemble works together as a team to build the set, run the sound, and focus lights in the allotted time. My general duties included:

  • assisting in unloading the truck

  • creating a raised stage by attaching legs to individual platforms and then bolting them together

  • creating pipe structures by footing pipes and attaching cheeseboroughs

  • assisting in packing the truck

 

Within this system, each player has a technical role that they specialize in. Mine was Assistant Master Electrician. My specialized duties included:

  • setting up and running DMX to light board and monitor

  • unpacking and assembling all traveling units                                                                          (source 4's, LEDs, cliplights, and birdies)

  • problem solving the variations in amount/location of                                                         available dimmers with the help of a Leprechaun

  • setting and running cable to all units

  • taping and tieing all cabling

  • composing gels and gobos

  • focusing venue's pre-hung units

  • packing and maintaining all equipment
