Stage Manager

A Hunger Artist
at the Connelly Theater, NYC
June 2017


Sinking Ship seeks a non-equity production stage manager for A Hunger Artist. Adapted from the Kafka short story, this is a one-person physical theater performance running at the Connelly Theater in June 2017 as part of The Tank's Flint & Tinder series. We are looking for someone who is well-organized, has a sense of humor and who can stay cool under pressure. The PSM will also operate the sound, which includes live cueing in response to what’s happening on stage during a particular segment of the performance. We’re particularly interested therefore in someone who has a good sense of comedic timing.

Responsibilities will include:

  • Running all rehearsals and performances
  • Arriving early to all rehearsals and performances to set up the space
  • Communicating with designers (let them know when designer runs are and what changes arise in rehearsal)
  • Tracking script changes
  • Writing and sending daily calls to artistic team
  • Writing and sending rehearsal and performance reports to the artistic team
  • Coordinating with PSM for Streepshow (which we will be in rep with)
  • Coordinating and overseeing changeover from Hunger Artist to Streepshow
  • Keeping team on schedule during rehearsals, tech, and performances
  • Calling the show
  • Operating sound
  • All other duties customarily performed by a PSM

PSM will oversee an ASM (who will perform run crew duties). ASM will begin work just prior to tech.
 
Timeline
The production will run for 21 performances from May 31-June 27, 2017 at the Connelly Theater in Manhattan. Rehearsals start at the beginning of May.

Fee: $1000
