Welcome to Local 824

Local 824 is the Athens, GA chapter of I.A.T.S.E.- the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees. We provide stagehands, lighting, sound, and other services for concerts, conventions, and theatrical productions in the N.E. Georgia area.

The International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, Moving Picture Technicians, Artists and Allied Crafts of the United States, Its Territories and Canada was founded in 1893 when representatives of stagehands working in eleven cities met in New York and pledged to support each others’ efforts to establish fair wages and working conditions for their members. Our union has evolved over the succeeding 119 years to embrace the development of new entertainment mediums, craft expansion, technological innovation and geographic growth.
