Florida Job Advice
« on: Jan 01, 2014, 11:07 am »
Hi All,

I managed to land a 6 week gig down here in Boca Raton with the Mizner Center, but am trying to think ahead to my next jump. Since I'm going through the relocation down to this area I'm hoping for some advice on where to job search.

I've done the usual Playbill, Offstage, and Artsearch, but are there any folks down here or who've worked down here with recommendations?

Thanks all!
-Kawrem

Congratulations on the gig in Boca and welcome to SMNetwork.

I have lived in Miami for a bit over 7 years - what type of work are you looking for?  Most of the larger houses in the tri-county area (Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach) are touring houses, so they come fully staffed.  You may check them out to see if there are full-time resident positions available. 

Some of the large touring venues ff the top of my head:
Kravitz CFPA - West Palm Beach
Broward CFPA - Ft Lauderdale
Adrienne Arscht CFPA - Miami
Fillmore - Miami Beach

Some companies / smaller venues in the area you may check out for show-specific opportunities.  This is very Miami-centric as I rarely venture North of county-line road if I can avoid it  ;)

New Theatre - Coral Gables (Miami)
New World Sympony - Miami Beach
Florida Grand Opera - Miami
Actor's Playhouse - Coral Gables
GableStage - Coral Gables
Miami City Ballet - Miami Beach
Gusman CFPA - Miami

The arts scene in Miami in general has really developed over the last few years so I am sure you can find a number of other companies in Miami, but I imagine most would not be capable of paying a living wage.

I have been out of Stage Managing full time since I moved to Miami so I have not actually worked for any of these companies, so please treat this as more of a list than as recommendations of where to seek employment. 

Good luck in your search and please keep us posted!
