Call for Production Team Members

By on
After a shaky start, the One Acts are officially back on!
 
We're looking for the following roles to support the plays from a technical standpoint. The time commitment for both roles is intermittent meetings April through June, then July 1 - 8 is build week, during which they would organize the set build, lighting hang, and cue/level sets. The schedule this week would be up to them (i.e. it would not have to be every night, or use the long weekend). July 9-10 is tech weekend, which is expected to be all day in the theatre both days. July 11-12 are dress rehearsal evenings, then July 13-15 and 20-22 are show nights.
 
1) Production Manager

2) Technical Director
This role is responsible for working with directors of the plays to ensure that their technical needs are met. This role can be fairly expansive depending on what plays want to do for themselves; it can span set designer, set builder, light designer, sound designer, etc. During build week and tech weekend, they would be in charge (in conjunction with the Production Manager) of ensuring that the tech stuff gets done. Their responsibilities during the run of the show are dependent on the decisions of the Production Manager; they may be running tech in the booth, or they may not be present at show nights at all. This role requires technical skills. This is an excellent role for anyone who may be considering the role of Technical Manager in the future.
