Jobs

Thank you for your interest in Actors' Shakespeare Project. We are currently accepting applications for the following open positions:

Board Operator
Actors' Shakespeare Project seeks a Sound Board Operator for our current production of Measure for Measure. Directed by Megan Sandberg-Zakian and Stage Managed by Cassie M. Seinuk, load-in begins Monday, December 22, 2014. Tech begins January 3, previews begin January 6, opening is January 10, closing is February 1. We have two 10 out of 12s, plus afternoon rehearsals during previews. Performances are Thursday-Saturday nights, plus Saturday and Sunday afternoons. There are six 10am student matinees scheduled on Tuesdays and Thursdays for this production. The venue is the Multicultural Arts Center in Cambridge and is accessible via public transportation.

Work closely with the designers to program the board, maintain lighting and sound equipment, perform dimmer check, run the sound board during the performances, and assist with general show maintenance. Minimal experience required, but must be a quick learner, have attention to detail, and be able to follow directions under tight deadlines in stressful situations. This is not a position for someone looking to show us they can be a designer but for someone genuinely interested in learning more tech skills or putting their skills into practice.

Please send resume and letter of interest to Heather Stern, heather [at] actorsshakespeareproject [dot] org.

Stage Management Intern
Actors' Shakespeare Project seeks a Stage Management Intern for our current production of Measure for Measure. Directed by Megan Sandberg-Zakian and Stage Managed by Cassie M. Seinuk, load-in begins Monday, December 22, 2014. Tech begins January 3, previews begin January 6, opening is January 10, closing is February 1. We have two 10 out of 12s, plus afternoon rehearsals during previews. Performances are Thursday-Saturday nights, plus Saturday and Sunday afternoons. There are six 10am student matinees scheduled on Tuesdays and Thursdays for this production. The venue is the Multicultural Arts Center in Cambridge and is accessible via public transportation; however the venue is not a typical theater space and applicants must be ready for a whole new experience. Interns will help the Equity Stage Manager & Assistant Stage Manager with line notes, props & costume tracking, being on book & running lines, preset & clean up of space, and will help the ASM run backstage during the run of the production. This is an excellent hands-on opportunity.

No prior stage management experience is necessary but a sincere interest in learning the skills of stage managing or production management is a necessity. Applicants involved in other aspects of theater but interested in learning how every department works are welcome. We are looking for someone with up-beat & calm energy, the ability to multi-task & prioritize & think on one’s feet, ability to think on one’s own & take direction well, patience, discretion, and motivation.

To apply, please email your resume, cover letter, and references to Heather Stern at heather [at] actorsshakespeareproject [dot] org. No phone calls please.
