Stage Managers for 2023 summer season

GreenStage is seeking Stage Managers for our 2023 Shakespeare in the Park tour. Our summer season consists of three tours. Each tour has its own Stage Manager.

NOTE: GreenStage is an all volunteer organization, but we do provide a stipend to all actors and members of the production team as a thank-you and to help cover travel expenses

BASICS – Stage managers may need to have reliable transportation, however our hope for the 35th Annual Season is to have rental vans to transport our two mainstage shows. Backyard Bard SM will need reliable transportation. Each of our three productions tours to several different locations in and around Seattle. Stage Managers help coordinate the transport of props, costumes, and other items to performance spaces. We may also recruit actors with cars to help transport items. In general, we travel light, scenic pieces are minimal.

The season runs from July 7 through August 12. We perform in public parks in Seattle, Fall City, Lynnwood and Burien. Performances are Friday – Sunday evenings, with matinees on weekends. Each production has around 15 total performances.

Rehearsals start in June and are on weekday evenings and weekend days – usually 5-6 days a week. Tech is the week prior to opening, but there are no long days during tech.

$1,200 stipend paid at the end of run
