Norris Theatre

Theatre Technician

NUMBER OF POSITIONS: 6-8

HOURS NEEDED: MWF 11:00 AM-12:00 Noon, 3:30-5:30. Tuesday and Thursday times TBA. I do not teach on Tuesdays and Thursdays this fall, so many projects might be available. We will work nights and weekends as needed, and generally do that at least 5-8 times per semester.

DUTIES: The position duties include but are not limited to: Set construction, prop construction, set painting, costume shop organizing, set shop organizing and cleaning, set shop inventory, painting the stage floor of both the JPAC and the Norris Theatre, event monitoring (such as ushering at JPAC and dance events), setting lights and sound for shows, stage management, and general backstage work, including setting up the Haunted House. Clean-up duties related to theatrical performances in the Norris Theatre and the JPAC. Moving chairs, tables, and equipment will also be a part of the job on occasion.

POSITION REQUIREMENTS: Applicants must enjoy doing theatre, and be ready to learn all aspects of theatre. A good attitude is essential, and a willingness to work nights and weekends is a must. Applicants need to be able to lift 50 pounds and I prefer applicants with no fear of heights. Sound technicians, light technicians, and those with carpentry skills would be especially welcome.

EXPERIENCE NEEDED: None, except as stated above.
