Production Specific - April / May 2016
Voluntary Position - Non Professional Company
Proforça Creative is a brand new theatre company based in London. Our first project is a brand new play, entitled "If I Go" to be produced at a theatre in East London (Walthamstow) in May 2016. We are looking for a Stage Manager to work closely with the Production Team and to manage the stage for performance week.
You will ideally have had some prior experience for amateur / low budget productions. You will also have also worked closely together with a production team, and stage management team in a prior small studio / fringe theatre environment and hopefully have run a production yourself from a technical perspective, including contributing to the set up / build process of staging, running a book, calling and managing scenery and set changes and managing a small cast of actors (7 in total for this production).
As we are non-professional company, and none of us take a salary, this position would suit either someone looking to start out and work on a production for fun, or has worked in this area for other amateur productions / societies before. We will be happy to encourage and develop your ideas and creativity, give you lots of freedom and experience, and input into the production as well as lots of publicity for your work through our social media channels. We foster a fun, creative and supportive environment and happy to promote you and your work to others.
Rehearsals for the production are underway, so we would be looking to have someone signed up as soon as possible. In terms of commitment, we would be looking for someone to attend as many rehearsals as possible (weekly, some weekends) to become familiar with the production, as well as be available for the whole of show week (May 2nd - 7th inclusive) and work closely with the production team as we develop the production further.
