This is a great opportunity for someone interested in sound to learn, or for someone with more experience to refine their skills. The individual should be quick on their feet but calm in stressful situations and also comfortable working outdoors with a large amount of volunteers and even animals.
The Sound Intern will be responsible for assisting the sound team in setting up the sound system before rehearsals begin. This includes moving gear around, hooking up speakers, running lines to speakers, hiding speakers, running tests on equipment, cleaning equipment, and maintaining upwards of 24 wireless mics.
During rehearsals and performances the Sound Intern will be responsible for making sure all performers have the appropriate mic in a timely manner. This will require assessing where mic changes need to occur, who needs a mic for the scene being rehearsed, etc.
During rehearsals the Sound Intern will be responsible for creating paperwork tracks when actors have mics relative to the script. This task involves keeping a detailed spreadsheet of when actors have mics, which mics they have, when they need to be changed etc. As rehearsals progress, this paperwork will need to be updated frequently.
