Paid Internship Opportunity:

Production Assistants wanted for Theatre Yes’ Slight of Mind

Theatre Yes is recruiting Production Assistants for their upcoming production of Slight of Mind, written by Beth Graham and premiering at the Citadel Theatre in March 2019. Slight of Mind is a site-specific, immersive production that takes the audience on a roving journey from opulent lobbies to hidden underground caverns. Using non-theatre spaces at the Citadel Theatre, drawing inspiration from Greek myth and the marvel of human flight, Slight of Mind will shine a light on the nature of truth.
