Live entertainment encompasses many aspects of the events at the Schottenstein Center. They include concerts, sporting events, seminars, trade shows, family entertainment and many other production events. Working at the Schottenstein Center may involve you working unsocial hours on a variety of event formats. Be prepared for your days to include setting up the largest concerts then helping to convert the arena to be ready for a sporting event. It is our sincere desire that you enjoy the diverse programming the JSC offers, while knowing that you are an integral part of making it happen for the Columbus community.
As a stagehand you will have a variety of roles at the Schottenstein Center. In the production department we provide a labor force for visiting touring productions, as well as having the opportunity to assist the conversion teams to ready the arena for a variety of events. The labor force for a touring event is broken down into the following departments, Rigging, Lighting, Audio, Carpentry, Video, Wardrobe, Pushers and Truck Loaders. Over the next few events your supervisor will be looking to place you in different departments to help you develop a better understanding of the scope of work you will encounter as a stagehand. You will work alongside tenured stagehands and will have a great opportunity to learn the craft necessary to be successful and valuable in those departments.
