    Well, we don't have a designated crew night, but we often get together, go out for some sushi, and then we, uh, play badminton. Yeah, that's it, we play badminton and other things that those under the age of eighteen are allowed to do.

    Or 21 in the wonderful united states (you can go to war and die for your country, but you can't have a glass of wine when your at dinner. does that make sense?). But, we play cards, and study, thats it, we study a lot.

    At my intern ship we had a grill out hosted by the set designer in the middle of the summer then after it was all said and done there was a viewing of the rocky horror picture show at the intern house (housing was provided if you were over hte age of 18) They said they were getting dressed up and I thought nothing of it. I was rather taking back by what they maniged to find in the custume room, and embaresed that I went to so little effort, wearing what I wore to work.

    but at my high school after strike we go out to eat and there are partys after the shows but no one really makes plans.

    well the host in the movie sat night next to me in fish net stockings a vest and a very short swim suit but after working side by side on 5 shows over 3 months you get by thoose little things quickly.

    well, I would go out and party or something after shows, but being only 15, and having parents who think tht 9 is a good time to be home, it's really hard to even stay light to help strike a set, much less go eat pizza or something afterwardss. And everyone freaks out when you play with lighters too. :(

    was the host of the movie a guy or a girl?

    JahJahwarrior, im 15 too but i dont think ive ever gotten home from a night of tech before 9:00 tonight i was there until 10 and that was just a rehersal for something we rented the school for, after shows, we usually are done with strike by 9 or 10 the whole cast and crew usually go to a nearby diner to eat socialize relax and for once, not worry about deadlines.

    Does anybody else run into the problem in HS about some students feeling the need to get REALLY messed up after shows? It just makes it no fun when you have to spend the whole night taking care of kids who are puking up their guts...A good crew party could be fun..but i am somewhat jaded as in my town it normally means exessive drinking.

    soundman.... ew

    no we dont drink after shows, if anyone does, its not alot, not nearly enough to be puking over
    and jahjahwarrior, i stay up really late, so for my parents to make me come home early would just be stupid, i wont b sleeping anyway... especially not after a good show.

    I am only 17 now, when i used to do school theatre we all (teacher, actors etc - i was the only 'techie' that would go out!! the other were kinda sad) at then end of a production would go down the local pub and all drink lotsand lots of beer and having a great time - Since most kids in england have been drinking in pubs since 15/16 most of us know how to control our drink and be able to get pissed without getting paraletic. At the venue i am the cheif engineer we often (once a month) go out to town, see a gig the go to a club and end up back at the venue until about 6 in the morning running up a large tab ;-). I cant stand those techies or engineers who wont go out for a drink/nite out when the get a chance. Its great to go out and drink with techies and not metion anything technical!!!

    I avoid parties and drinking (except water) always. If you ask me its a dumb thing to do, I know too many people who have gotten hurt bad or messed up their lives by drinking. I live almost 45 mins away from my school, and when i have someone else working with me, they could very well live 45 mins in the other direction. Considering that the nearest real pizza place is 30 mins in the direction away from everyones houses, it gets to be too much of a bother to have any kind of tech nights. If anything we'll bring candy to school and eat it on stage (where not much can get hurt by a spill) or in the lobby. Of course that happens once in a blue moon, because most of the time I really dont have a crew... It's just me for most of the shows I do. (only really have a crew for bigger shows a few times a year)

    so ya, i often sit alone at my kitchen table at 11 pm or later when i get home and have a nice big party for myself as i eat supper! (homework fits in during shows that i dont have to do much for other then setup and take down, and into the wee hours of the morning)

    well when i was in high school, on friday nights after a show, all the techies would go to denny's, and usually that's when most of the old techie alum come to see the show so we hang out and talk, and catch up on old times, then saturday since our TD wouldn't let us strike after the show, so we would go to the company party, with cast/tech, everyone involved, and have some fun, then all the techs leave togeather and we go to a parking lot and make a bon fire with our cue sheet, prompt books everything, it's a fun way to end the show. and as far as alchol, we might have a drink or 2 but don't get drunk.

    we generally go to the diner after every show with the people involved, but on closing night we go to the cast/crew party.
