Merlyn Productions is committed to giving performers of many different ages and levels of experience the opportunity to appear on stage, creating a situation whereby upcoming actors – and even first-timers – can hone and develop their craft working alongside seasoned professionals.

As part of this philosophy, many of our productions are cast via auditions open to the general public, and also offer opportunities to work in various departments "behind the scenes".

Artwork

Merlyn Productions is currently seeking an Assistant Stage Manager for its December production. (See: Upcoming Shows)

Stage managing provides an excellent opportunity to become significantly involved in local live theatre "behind the scenes".

The typical stage management team consists of:

STAGE MANAGER (SM) -
Supervises the cast & crew. In rehearsal: serves as the Director's right-hand, and maintains the prompt-script. In performance: oversees the running of the show, and the calling of light & sound cues from the control booth.
ASSISTANT STAGE MANAGER (ASM) -
Provides general assistance to the Stage Manager throughout the production run, and manages the backstage area during performances: supervising curtain pulls, scene shifts, and other onstage technical changes.

Reliability and punctuality are a must. Prior production experience is considered an excellent asset, but not required — the company will train suitable candidates.

AVAILABILITY REQUIREMENTS

The ASM will be required at the Forrest Nickerson Theatre for Technical Rehearsal on the evening of December 22, Dress Rehearsal during the day on December 23, and for all five scheduled performances, December 26 to 30. (The theatre is dark on December 24 & 25.)

APPLICATIONS

To express interest in stage managing with Merlyn Productions, e-mail info@merlyn.biz or call 204-415-2714. Résumé of past theatre experience, if available, should be forwarded to the same.
