Hard work, preparation and time from the sound team and light crew are a few things that were involved in the making of this semester’s performance of Magic Moments.
The show was held Oct. 4 in the Kirkham Auditorium.
Darbil Hurlbut, a junior studying accounting, said the show-making process begins with the technical crew setting the light and audio systems.
“Before every show, performers, stage crew and sound crew come in almost three hours early to make sure everything will run smoothly during the show and will practice with the sound and lighting crew,” Hurlbut said.
He said he has worked both on stage and backstage and that he enjoys gaining experience with handling the light and sound equipment.
“I’ve been doing this job for five semesters, and I like it a lot,” Hurlbut said. “In high school, I was in a small rock band with smaller equipment, so being able to be a part of bigger shows with bigger equipment is really neat. I enjoy doing sound, making everyone sound good.”
Jeffrey Leung, a senior studying piano performance, said he participates in the show every semester by either performing and or helping prepare for the show.
“I’m always on the stage performing,” Leung said. “[However], I like seeing all the behind the scenes stuff. It helps me learn a lot. I especially love it because I’m not only working, but I’m also learning.”
