Job Description / Duties

The Canadian Badlands Passion Play is currently accepting applications for the position of Deck Sound Assistant. The approximate dates of the 2018 contract will be from May 7 to July 27, 2018.

During rehearsals and performances, the Sound Assistant is responsible for making sure all actors have the appropriate mics at the appropriate time. This will require creating a mic map during rehearsals with the Head of Sound, showing which actors need mics at which point in the script.  Since actors will often need to share microphones, the map needs to assess where mic changes should occur, who needs help, etc. A good grasp of excel spreadsheets is required.

- Updating and maintaining the mic map to ensure all speaking roles have mics. This involves keeping a detailed spreadsheet of when actors have mics, which mics they have, etc.

- Assessing each mic’d performer and their costume to ascertain the best place to conceal a lavalier mic and battery pack.
- Assisting with setting levels and locations of mics when available. 
- Troubleshooting potential problems and communicating them with the Head of Sound/Sound Engineer.
