The Theatre Services in the Faculty of Arts is currently seeking a Full-time Limited Term Stage Manager for approximately 1 year.
University Theatre Services (UTS) is a Division within the School of Creative and Performing Arts that operates the University Theatre, The Rozsa Centre ( Eckhardt-Gramatté Hall, conference centre and recording Studio), the Boris Roubakine Recital Hall and the Joyce and Quentin Doolittle Studio. UTS is responsible for providing technical and managerial support in the areas of carpentry, sound recording and reinforcement, lighting, meeting and conference services. UTS also supports UC International events in the Rozsa Centre and Drama productions in the Reeve and Matthews Theatre.
The Stage Manager reports to the Manager of University Theatre Services. The Stage Manager oversees the day to day technical staffing and coordination of all performance based events booked through UTS. UTS processes a high volume of over 500 event bookings using over 1900 booking days by over 45 departments on campus and more than 100 off campus clients. The day to day running of the facilities, event staff scheduling, event coordinating, costing, the maintenance of equipment, and working as the stage manager on events within the University Theatre are duties that fall within this job.
The Stage Manager will provide technical support to 'on and off' campus clients for their bookings. The nature of this job is such that adaptability and flexibility are mandatory. Most of our clients (including faculty and students) have little or no experience when it comes to event co-ordination and scheduling so the Stage Manager must have the ability to quickly identify and solve issues when they arise.
Throughout the majority of the year the Stage Manager will work a 35-hour work week from Monday to Friday. Evening and weekend work will be required in which the Stage Manager will be required to work as a stage manager for all Division of Dance productions, as a rigger and stage carpenter for all Division of Drama productions in the University Theatre and to work productions when required in all of our facilities during our high peak seasons (November to December and April to June). The Stage Manager will be required to be on call 7 days a week to provide expertise and possible technical assistance in the event of staff sickness, client concerns, university closure and any other matter that may inhibit the successful staging of a production.
