We are seeking someone who welcomes the excitement of working on a new show, and can work in a fast paced, highly collaborative environment with a diverse cast and crew.

  • Finding sound cues/props needed for rehearsals, running sound in rehearsals, making rehearsals reports and daily calls, updating scripts and blocking. (experience with QLab a plus)
  • Assisting with load in/load out, running tech, and calling the show during performances.  (Depending on the complexity of tech needs, our Assistant Director may work with Stage Manager to call the show)
  • Experience with new and/or devised work a plus to navigate the fluidity of the process.
  • Will coordinate with ASM to delegate responsibilities and communicate updates.

ABOUT HONEST ACCOMPLICE

We create original theater and media that seeks to expand the way women and trans people are seen by others and by themselves.  We do this by exploring topics that are often silenced, seen as shameful, or portrayed as one-dimensional, and through our work seek to drive individual acceptance and incite community dialogue about issues pertaining to woman and trans people.  To increase our impact and reach as many people as possible, we tour to community centers, universities, high schools, and senior centers, and make our videos free online — continuing the dialogue with an ever-growing number of people.

ABOUT CHIP ON HER SHOULDER (working title)

“A Chip On Her Shoulder” (working title) is a devised/docu-drama investigating the experiences of cis-women, trans people, and other minorities in the field of engineering and stimulates the conversation of what it means to be a visible and/or invisible identity in the field. Engineers impact our homes, our transportation, our food, and almost every advance we experience in our ever changing world, yet only 14% of engineers are women. The script is made up of both verbatim and devised material and we are seeking performers for both aspects of the show.  After premiering the show, we plan to tour the piece to college locations.
