NYC/NJ Stage Manager (July 8 – August 11, 2019)

Toms River Shakespeare Festival
New York, NY 10025

Job Details


TOMS RIVER SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL has an immediate opening for a non-Equity Stage Manager for its third season production of Measure for Measure. The Stage Manager will report directly to the Producing Artistic Director. Rehearsals will take place in NYC (week of July 8, 2019 – August 3, 2019) and in Toms River, NJ (tech/dress August 5-6, 2019). Performances will take place in Toms River, NJ (August 7 – 11, 2019). Duties will include: calling all cues for rehearsals and performances, managing accurate time and break schedules in the rehearsal room, being the first point of contact for actors with regard to any scheduling issues/conflicts, assisting with any show related paperwork/scheduling, providing detailed rehearsal reports, taking note of blocking, scene transitions and prop movements, providing wardrobe supervision and helping with load-in and tech. The ideal candidate will have experience working at outdoor theatre festivals, be a good problem solver/communicator, maintain a professional attitude and work environment and be able to remain flexible in a highly collaborative environment. A familiarity with Shakespeare is not necessary but helpful. Please note: We are willing to consider hiring separate NYC and NJ Stage Managers to cover the overlap between NYC/NJ rehearsals and performances as we are unable to provide local (NJ) housing at this time. There is a stipend for this position and compensation will be paid half at first week of rehearsal and half at end date or show closing. Please send a cover letter, resume and references via email at your earliest convenience. 


July 8, 2019 – August 11, 2019
