I got this book because I was offered a job for the first time teaching stage crew two children at a summer camp. I don't a lot of work with stage crew in the past, particularly the kind I have been hired for - cardboard and duct tape. I found this book very helpful, but not necessarily for the job I had been hired for. The book provide a lot of advice from a person who's actually been in the field, teaching stage crew at a local high school. He gave his advice and I found it to be very beneficial learning experience. I'm very glad I purchased this book, even if I didn't use it in the where I thought I would have. If you're looking for a good information about that can help you become a better stage for teacher, or even just learned how to participate and stage for better then this is definitely the book for you. I highly recommend this book for any needs that you might have.

In my library of stagecraft books, this is one of my favorites. It is choc full of useful ideas and tips from an author who has clearly been "down that road" before. John covers the gambit of technical theatre from set design, promotion, sound, lighting...even communications and dealing with issues. If you are a high school tech director, you'll really appreciate he author's perspective. The ideas are real in that they are balanced with the limitations of school politics and budgets as well as the realities of working with students. Far from a technical textbook, the tone of the book is like having a conversation with an experienced technical director. His commentary and examples with make you laugh because we've all been there. Thanks, John Kaluta for this book. I hope you'll write another; maybe with a special focus on set design, construction, and effects. I'd love to hear more!

Be warned: Although the second edition is shown in the picture, what you're actually buying is the first edition. As someone who has read both, my advice is definitely to buy the second!

I purchased The Perfect Stage Crew after taking over the Theatre Arts class and role as Technical Director at the high school where I teach. I had little theater experience and no technical knowledge when I accepted both positions. Prior to purchasing this text, I had read numerous reviews and purchased other texts, none of which addressed the specific issues I was encountering on a daily basis - such as basic stagecraft, simple (but effective) lighting, tips for managing a crew and tricks for maintaining my sanity. The text reads easily and is well organized. Mr. Kaluta has a priceless sense of humor, and I would swear he's been backstage in my theater! I feel confident in following his advice and learning from his mistakes because he's been where I am. I have even moved away from the "textbook" for my course and started creating notes and handouts gleaned from the pointers and information in The Perfect Stage Crew. Thank you so much for writing a book on technical theater that doesn't read like an instructional manual for a vacuum cleaner and that makes me laugh out loud while nodding in agreement. I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone working in high school or community theatre. It has proven invaluable to me, and I expect to return to it often over the next several years.

Was exactly what I expected.

What a funny, educational book. I'd recommend it to any starting-up tech director. The writing is wonderful and engaging and actually keeps you entertained while dealing with a very technical subject. A technical subject is usually is a big red flag: "THIS BOOK IS TECHNICAL SO IT WILL BORE THE BEJESUS OUT OF YOU"... but not with this book!

I'd recommend it to anyone trying to get into the technical side of theater and not look like a complete (compleat) idiot on their first day.

This book has been so helpful!
Really liked the book and look forward to the update. I gave it to my student tech crew chief to read, though it is really written for the teacher-leader. I'd love to see a student edition for a stagecraft class.
