Stage Manager URGENTLY NEEDED

GreenStage still needs Stage Managers to join our 2022 Shakespeare in the Park team. 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

RELIABLE VEHICLE REQUIRED – Each production 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 also recruit actors with cars to help transport items. And we travel light.

The season runs from July 8 through August 6. 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. See full schedule HERE

Rehearsals have started and are on weekday evenings, and one weekend day. Tech week is July 3-7 with July 4th off. Tech does not include any long days.

$1,000 stipend paid at the end of run

HOW THIS IS DIFFERENT FROM OTHER STAGE MANAGEMENT JOBS

  • NO 10 out of 12 rehearsals. Even “tech” rehearsals are only 4 hours
  • No cues to call besides “places”
  • We perform in open parks, with only simple scenic pieces like benches and flags.
  • Lighting for evening performances is a row of footlights that turn on at the start of the show and off at the end.
  • We have amplified sound but stage managers don’t have to deal with that.
