The Canadian Badlands Passion Play is currently accepting applications for the Sound Intern for the summer of 2012. The contract would run from May 10th to July 29th, 2012.
The Sound Intern functions as a crucial and collaborative member of the Sound Team at the Canadian Badlands Passion Play. Outside of rehearsals, the Sound Intern will participate in the installation of the sound system for the production with duties ranging from hooking up digital snakes and boards to setting up speakers, hiding speakers within the design of the set, running lines to speakers and attending to wireless microphones.
During rehearsals the Sound Intern will be primarily responsible for running the computer and music for the show. This includes keeping a detailed script and executing computer based cues throughout the show. The Sound Intern will work closely with the Sound Engineer and Composer and receive onsite training in these areas. In accordance with the abilities of the individual hired, additional duties may also include mixing voices, creating sound effects, dealing with wireless microphones, sourcing and adjusting sound levels, and being a liaison between the music department and stage management.
This is an evolving position, so new duties may be assigned as they arise. Remuneration for the position will be an Intern Honorarium.
The Canadian Badlands Passion Play is one of Canada’s largest outdoor theatrical events. Now in its 19th season, the company annually depicts the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ in dramatic form. An epic story told on an epic scale, this year’s production features a creative retelling of the Gospel of John. The script will be originated by a mixed professional/volunteer cast of approximately 200 actors in a 2700-seat outdoor amphitheatre.
