We are looking for a male Company Stage Manager with performance experience who is technically strong and excited about the prospect of bringing this brilliant new play to life for audiences up and down the country:
A world premiere original play by the creator of Horrible Histories, and one of the most popular authors in the world. A co-production by Sixth Sense Theatre Co. and Octagon Theatre, Bolton. The production tours primary schools for 7 weeks in the South West and 1 week in the North West before a residency re-launching the Octagon’s Studio theatre.
‘The Sixty Minute Shakespeare Ensemble’ is a group of travelling Victorian actors with a mission to bring Shakespeare to the people. Already hindered by a missing actor and an unexpected audience, their condensed production of ‘The Scottish Play’ becomes increasingly chaotic with the apparent arrival of ‘The Macbeth Curse.’
Company Stage Manager/Performer
We are specifically looking for a competent Company Stage Manager who can erect a set, has good sound and LX knowledge, can set up technical equipment and is able to operate the equipment during the performance.
The Company Stage Manager will also be required to appear in costume on stage as Banquo’s ghost. There will be spoken lines for Banquo’s ghost so we do require a male Company Stage Manager.
The Company Stage Manager will be the Company representative and be the first line of communication whilst on tour, schools touring experience is desirable along with expertise in Health and Safety.
A current DBS check is required. If this is not held an application will be made. We also require a clean driving licence and the ability to drive a van.
