Everywhere that live performers entertain audiences, workers represented by the IATSE Stagecraft Department are behind the scenes. We work in venues that include Broadway theaters, opera houses, dance centers, regional theaters, seasonal outdoor amphitheaters, arenas, concert halls, parks, television awards venues and stadiums. Additionally, the front-of house workers who seat the patrons, work in the box office, scan the tickets and look after the audiences in dozens of ways are also represented by the IATSE, as are the press agents, house and company managers in legitimate theater.
The Stagecraft Department is as old as the IATSE itself, and since 1893, 365 days per year we have been behind the curtain and behind the scenes. As a department we are proud of our long history and tradition, with our fingers on the pulse of technological change. We provide an experienced, technologically adept, flexible, skilled workforce to live venues of every kind all across the United States and Canada.
