It’s that time again! We are looking to put together our production team for our next major show, Rope. There will be a total of 7 performances held between November 21-29, 2014 (exact dates are still being confirmed) at the Gibson House Museum. We are looking for the following;
Do you love lists and schedules? Are you a master-multi-tasker? Do you have previous experience as a stage manager (or assistant stage manager on more than one occasion)? Then we want to hear from you. The SM will be in charge of organizing rehearsals, sending rehearsal reports, taking minutes at production meetings, hiring ASMs and calling the show. Expect to be at the majority of the rehearsals. Must be available for all show dates.
Are you a skilled technician with a flair for creativity? Are you comfortable working in a site-specific space that doesn’t include traditional sound and lighting equipment? Drop us a line. While there will likely be limited lighting design, we are looking for someone to help build a unique sound design. Ideally the designer will also be available to run the sound cues, but this may be flexible. Expect several meetings leading up to the show, as well as attendance at the dress and tech rehearsals.
Are you social media savvy? A marketing guru? Do you have a better understanding of Vine and Twitter than our AD does (chances are, most do)? Call us up. We are looking for people to assist with social media updates, blog posts, youtube videos and postering. Experience is not necessary, just a good understanding of the social media platforms.
Aside from working with the awesome people at Bygone Theatre, you will get a chance to work on a show that is being produced with the help of the City of Toronto; this means better publicity and a much farther reach than our previous shows. We cannot guarantee any pay at this point in the project, but we are hoping to raise enough funds to be able to provide all those involved with an honouraium. We are more than happy to help spread the word about any of your own projects and will write letters of recommendation if requested. For high school students looking to get their mandatory 40 hours of volunteer time, we can provide that for you, as well as serve as a teaching tool for those interested in getting involved in local theatre. This is a non-union performance.
If you are interested in being involved, send a cover letter and resume to Artistic Director Emily Dix at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line, Rope Production Crew: (Position Applying For).
The application deadline is Monday September 1, 5:00pm.
