Basic duties of a STAGEHAND are: Assist the traveling crew in setting up of lighting, sound, sets, and band gear. A STAGEHAND should be able to lift 50 lbs. unassisted and will never be expected to lift more than that without assistance from another STAGEHAND.  The most basic function of a STAGEHAND is placing the gear.   This involves taking boxes, crates, trussing, etc. that has been off-loaded from trucks by LOADERS, and pushing said items to a place within the venue  as directed by the traveling crew.
