The Bard on Bower is an artist co-op; the core cast, crew and production team are shareholders in the festival, and payment is based on how much money is made beyond the recovery of a portion of our expenses. Some travel allowance is available.
Rehearsals are scheduled to work around people with a weekday 9-5 job and are scheduled to start June 6th. Hamlet runs from July 17th- August 2nd, A Midsummer Night’s Dream runs July 24th- August 3rd. Load-in to Bower ponds begins July 5th.
SET/PROP DESIGNER(S)- There is a base ‘festival stage’ with a structure of platforms and stairs which needs design elements to make each show look unique. The line is quite blurred between set, set dressing and props in this setting. You would work with our TD to see all physical elements completed, installed and stricken from the Bower Ponds stage.
STAGE MANAGER(S)– Each show needs an SM throughout rehearsals and performances. The schedule is not consistent as both shows rehearse at the same time, with the week and sometimes each day split between both productions. You will be involved in operating the audio during performances.
COSTUMER- Hamlet still needs a costume designer who is responsible for sourcing and altering (when necessary) all costumes for one of the two productions, in conjunction with the vision the Director has for that show and each character. We will work with you to find casual volunteer help with alterations if needed.
SOUND TECHNICIAN– You will be responsible for the set up and operation of the sound system, including a dozen wireless mics, for all performances. You will attend rehearsals close to performance time to help create the mic map and to become familiar with the productions.
