I was thinking about this one for some random reason last night and figured I would pose the question here for your input. I'm curious, does anybody's high school stage/tech crew do anything other than just shows? Things like field trips or any other activities not directly related to getting ready for or running a show? We have a stage craft class that goes on a field trip or two (or attempts to, because apparently there's a district policy that's now being enforced that you can't propose a field trip that costs a student more than $40 in order to be fair to people with less money; and let's face it, with gas prices these days, the busses alone to go anywhere practically costs that much) and the teacher is trying to get someone from ETC to come down and give them a demo/workshop of some sort. The actual crew though as a club doesn't do anything other than the shows. So, does anybody do anything interesting, or is it strictly business?
