Brown Dogs' Roadie School Logo

Roadie School Under Development

Training in the stagecrafts needed to become a stage hand or roadie

 
PRLog - Mar. 29, 2012 - PORTLAND, Ore. -- Over 30 years ago two teenagers found themselves working together at The Paramount Theater in Portland Oregon as stagehands. As the years went by and skills were learned, opportunities followed. Several decades and many tours later, they have gotten together again to produce Brown Dog’s Roadie School.
This school is being designed off a trial testing of Roadie school in which over 40 students signed up. It was a complete success and they were able to put all 40 students’ right to work on local productions.
There are dozens of departments and crews that are needed to keep a production on the road, or a venue up and running.
Skills and expertise are required in Audio, Backline Tech., Carpentry, Electrics, Lighting, Rigging, Construction and even knots, just to name a few. For years in this industry these skills and tricks were well kept secrets, by those that fought to keep their own jobs.
Consequently, there are fewer and fewer trained stagehands to work in venues, and roadies to keep touring shows on the road.
The founders of Brown Dogs Roadie School have a combined experience of over 60 years working with professional productions and have developed this school to introduce you the skills required to work in this industry. Brown Dogs Roadie School is not a job placement service, but more a training resource. They have been developing an online training program and currently have a blog up and running. There website can be found at this address: www.browndogsroadieschool.com and thier
blog is a great place to get your question answered and can be found here: www.browndogsroadieschool.com/wordpress
