The Stage Manager at the College Light Opera Company is an incredibly demanding but immensely rewarding challenge for any determined young stage manager looking to hone her or his skills. The standard Stage Management tasks apply: recording blocking; calling shows; supervising tech rehearsals, dress rehearsals and set change overs – but these are fused into an accelerated schedule.
A successful candidate must possess impeccable organizational skills, a cool and calm disposition, refined communication skills and just the right amount of insanity to believe the task can be done week after week for nine weeks. We are seeking an individual with maturity, wit, patience, and tact. Exceptional leadership skills are essential. We are looking for an upperclassman or graduate student for this position. In addition to filling out the online application form, potential candidates should send a formal application letter to firstname.lastname@example.org and be prepared to participate in an online interview via Skype.
The Stage Manager must arrive to campus by 6:00 p.m. on June 10, 2019 and depart on by noon on Sunday August 30, 2020. The entire company is required to participate in final strike on the evening of Saturday August 29, 2020.
A drivers license is mandatory and a car is desirable. The position pays room and board and a stipend. For more information, please write to: email@example.com.
