No... stage crew is so much better
They are usually made up of the most awesome people you will ever meet. Never piss them off, for they control everything and will not hesitate to fuck you up on stage.
Crew member:...Fuck off, or I'll put brown paint on the chair you have to sit in during scene four.
Person 1: Hey, are you trying out for the play?
Person 2: Pff, no, I'm doing stage crew!
Jock 2: "Bro! The stage crew parties like a bunch of crazy people! I've never seen so many strobe lights!"
Stage crew members often become family and they will have nicknames for each other. Also, they are often in charge of babysitting for the cast, which includes waiting to their every need and searching for their props when they loose them.
Overall, stage crew is amazing so if you're thinking about joining the play, join stage crew instead. They have SO MUCH MORE FUN than the cast. So join crew.
*WARNING: Membership in the Stage Crew organization, which is a subsidiary of the Drama Club, may and most likely will result in fatigue, sleep deprivation, temporary and/or permanent insanity, an inexplicable urge to form close bonds with tools, and a perpetual sense of impending doom.
The Whole World: YOU TAKE THAT BACK! STAGE CREW IS THE BEST THING EVER. WITHOUT IT, THE SHOW WOULD NOT GO ON! YOU'RE SO UNTHANKFUL! STAGE CREW DOES EVERYTHING!!!!
