We are looking for a dynamic freelancer who enjoys the creative and logistical challenges of making theatre, is happy collaborating within the team as well as solving problems independently.

There are a number of responsibilities that are ongoing throughout the year. As productions are planned and mounted, the responsibilities and time commitments vary.
