What does one do when working in the "crew" of a theater production?

I recently auditioned for two plays at my college. I didn't get callback from either one. But I was wondering if working in the crew would be a good opportunity to get involved in the productions as well? What is the purpose of the crew? What do they do? Are their tasks hard? Do they have to stay at the rehersals for as long as the cast members? Help me out here. Do you think I will benefit or learn anything from the experience of working in the crew?

Alright.. Number one, time to clarify. The crew doesnt involve the make up, or coustumeing or anything like that.
