Note: We enjoy having our crew reflect the cultural and racial diversity that we celebrate in our country.

People from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

DATES:

Full staff should be working by May 28.  A smaller crew of key personnel may begin earlier to help load in shops and start construction for MTW productions, including Jesters, Cabaret, and all productions throughout the summer season.  Some may also join later. All dates are flexible, pending artists’ schedules.

SHOPS:

All shops are located in the Century II Complex.  They are air-conditioned, separate spaces, and are readily accessible to the stage of the Concert Hall.  The paint shop includes a 26’ x 54’ motorized paint frame.

WHAT WE OFFER:

A chance to do “Broadway Quality” work, with excellent designers and directors. The budgets are sufficient, the space is modern and workable, and each year this theatre proves to be an unusually good network connection to other major theatre centers.  Few  theatres offer the quality of work we have here.
