If you’ve ever wanted to volunteer as a student crew member at an on-campus event or find out about opportunities to work on the crew for concerts around Orlando, Show Production Course Director Susan Kelleher is the woman to get in touch with. Susan heads up two different show production-related student groups on campus: The Show Production Club and the Student Event Crew.
The Show Production Club, which is only open to those in the Show Production program, serves as a way for students to gain experience working on live events outside of Full Sail. Recent work opportunities have included loading-in duties at the WMMO Downtown Concert Series and working with the production crew at Orlando’s House of Blues.
“The club provides students with hands-on, practical experience in show production and gives them an opportunity to help the outside community,” says Susan. “We also try to have a social event each month so students can get to know each other.”
And for non-Show Pro students who have an interest in helping out on the crew of live productions, the broader Student Event Crew enlists volunteers for on-campus productions via Facebook announcements. No experience is necessary, and you can sign up by e-mailing Susan (firstname.lastname@example.org) or requesting to become a member of the club’s Facebook page.
