The City of Surrey Arts Services Division is seeking a qualified Assistant Technical Director (ATD) for the Surrey Civic Theatres (SCT). Providing the focal point for the performing arts in Surrey, the Civic Theatres are comprised of three performance spaces:
•The Surrey Arts Centre’s 405-seat Main Stage is a traditional proscenium stage and fly gallery located at Surrey Arts Centre. The theatre is the principle rental space for performing arts groups from Surrey and its surrounding communities.
•The 129-seat Studio Theatre was completed in 2002, as part of a larger renovation project at the Surrey Arts Centre. Characterized as a black box theatre, the seating is fully retractable, which allows for a wide range of configurations and uses, from traditional theatre settings to cabaret style performances and meetings.
•Centre Stage, which opened its doors in April 2014, is located in the Council Chambers at Surrey’s new City Hall. The space can be converted from the Council meeting space into a 200-seat performance theatre complete with state of the art sound, lighting and audio-visual equipment and raised stage area.
