The Wagon Wheel Theatre is looking for its 2020 team of technicians!
In order to produce another summer of Broadway-quality theatre, we need to fill the following positions: Technical Director, Assistant Technical Director, Master Electrician, Props Designer, Scenic Artist, 2 Costume/Wardrobe assistants, Sound Designer, and 3 Carpenter-Electricians. The season includes The Wizard of Oz, Guys and Dolls, The Music Man, Big the Musical, Pride and Prejudice, and Nunsense.
The Wagon Wheel is an 830 + seat theatre-in-the-round which is supported by a live orchestra during musical productions. Each production runs for 11 days, with only 3 days between productions. THAT’S FAST!!! Therefore, we need intelligent and quick-thinking technicians who are willing to learn, adapt and think on their feet.
These positions are summer contracts only (approximately 13 weeks).
Contracts run May 18th – August 22nd (willing to be flexible for students).
Some contracts may be extended based on crew needs for the last show and availability of crew members.
Hours worked per day are MANY, but the experience is worth it. EVERYONE ON CREW will be considered for run crew positions based on the production’s needs. Workdays will involve climbing, crawling, kneeling, bending, twisting, carrying, pushing, pulling, math, sawdust, working in the sun, evenings, and holidays, painting, loud noises, and sweeping.
Pay Starts at $325 per week and Housing is provided by theatre at no cost to the Technician.
