Technical Assistant Needed For TPS Stage at Bumbershoot 2011

Theatre Puget Sound is seeking a Technical Assistant for the TPS Stage at 2011 Bumbershoot.  Includes a $200 stipend and a festival pass for all days at Bumbershoot.  The job would be assistant to our Technical Director, Rex Carleton.  The work will mostly happen the week before Bumbershoot so you will have a chance to enjoy some of the festival!


·       Monday 8/29 – heavy work day.  Hang and focus lights, hang drapes, sound set-up, set theatre for tech, etc.  Experience with lights and other tech a huge plus.  Must be comfortable with working on ladders.  It will be at least a 12 hour day.

·       Tues 8/30 – Fri 9/2.  Technical rehearsals.  Could use one very patient, very focused production assistant to help wrangle companies, work the stage, troubleshoot lights, etc.  Days will be from 9:00 A – 11:00 P.  Not necessary that the assistant be there all of the time….but most of it.

·       Sat 9/3 – Mon 9/5.  Performance.  Not as critical as the others.  But it would be nice to have someone there to help with keeping things organized, performers informed and happy, help with changeovers, etc

We could also use some volunteers on those days – if you’re interested, please email with your technical information and availability.  Thanks!
