Stage Crew wanted ...for peanuts
By Flyman for The Stage

Presumably in an attempt to soften the blow of the derisory wages on offer, a recent advertisement for stage crew noted that extra hours might be worked and the carrot of additional payments for get-outs was held aloft.

Let us leave for another day the debate about the purpose of negotiating additional payments for appearing in costume or missing a tea break. Are they penalties to discourage the management from asking for such things or simply a way of getting wages that are somewhere near what they should be? Up here on the fly floor, offers of appearance money are few and far between.
