1: A Person who works Backstage during theatrical performances.
2: The People with Headsets and are silently laughing so hard they are crying because of the actors and actresses performance.
3: Really Run the Play
4: Techies (Ninjas) VS Actors (Pirates)

Techies are Referred to as Ninjas because they have the talent to vanish when ever the director is yelling at actors, and also must be silent and wear black for their job.

Actors are the Pirates cause they need the fans and the photos to continue doing there jobs. Techies do not need the fans or the photos they know they are awesome.

5: The people that have the most fun during play week, and after because they demolish everything!

6: The Stage Manager, Props Manager, Sound Technician, Light Technician, Spot Light Controllers, Scenery movers, and those who fly scenery in and out.

7: Techies are also the people you find sleeping in class or on the floor before play practice.
Don't piss off the Techies or you take your bow in the dark.

If the set falls down sure it may be our fault, you mess up your lines and don't improvise because of the set falling it's not our fault.

Don't put on the tehcie head sets, cause you may hear us making fun of you.

a techie is someone who builds the sets for plays. Also, they run the lights, sound, fly, props, set changes, and bothering the actors. They are known to wear all black and lurk in the darkness of the theater. They put in hours of work for little or no recognition from anyone and can usually be recognized by rather interesting sense of humor.
They have the mind of a techie.

Short for technicians. The people that make your shows happen. Often seen backstage, on the grid and any other dark space. Has a wide range of skills, knows how to fix anything with a role of duct tape. Rather sexual, doesn't need an excuse to feel you up. Always there for eachother. Strage obssessions with glowtape. Doesn't know what to do with self when tech is cancled. Basicly lives in the theater. Shows would be nothing without them. GO, techies, GO!
Those techies are strage creatures, I think one just tried to feel me up.

The guardians of silence; the masters of darkness. They wear the blackness of midnight, and walk as the wind does; sometimes silently, sometimes howlingly, but always swiftly and with purpose. They live behind the curtains.

They are the ninjas.
The actors are the pirates.
If you see a techie, it is because they want you to.
