Assistant Stage Manager for ChristieFest


Merlyn Productions Theatre Company is seeking an ASSISTANT STAGE MANAGER (ASM) for its ChristieFest 2017 production of "AND THEN THERE WAS ONE", being presented February 22 to 26 at the Forrest Nickerson Theatre.

The ASM will provide general daily assistance to the Stage Manager throughout the production run, and will be stationed backstage 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 can train a suitable candidate.


The ASM will be required at the Forrest Nickerson Theatre daily throughout production week, February 20 to 26. Times required are evenings Monday to Friday, and throughout the afternoon & evening on both Saturday and Sunday.

Monday February 20 and Tuesday February 21 are tech/dress rehearsals. Performances run Wednesday February 22 through Sunday February 26, with show times listed at

The necessity to attend studio rehearsals prior to production week will be minimal, likely totalling no more than 2 or 3.

Please respond only if you meet the availability requirements of this production.


To apply, contact Merlyn Productions ASAP at, or call 204-415-2714. Résumé of past theatre experience, if available, should be forwarded to the same.

ABOUT THE COMPANY: Merlyn Productions is a community theatre company that operates with a volunteer cast and staff, presenting a full season of stage plays for both general and young audiences throughout each year, and also operating the Winnipeg Theatre School for children, teens, and adults.
