This varies from each show with additions of followspot operators, flymen and etc. These are put in place to make sure that the stage and backstage areas are safe, all the lighting and sound equipment is functional. Once completed the Deputy Stage Manager will ask each department if they have completed it. Attached is the Pre-Show check list ready for the show.
