moving to the other city PHL
« on: Mar 19, 2006, 03:10 am »
Ok so I am looking into moving to Philadelphia in late August. I am hoping to move in order to be closer to family as we all get older I realize I should be spending more time with them and that's hard to do from halfway across the country. I have Regional, NYC and Touring experience. But I am finding the market hard to break. I keep on looking on Theatre Alliance but see nothing I can take. Does anyone out there have any hints? Are there job listings somewhere I'm not looking or is the community that close?

I agree that Philly is hard to break into.
The stage managers association is very active there; and they do have drink nights. The best advice I can give you is that you find out when the drink nights are and go there to network. The SMA website can give you the name to contact.
Good Luck!

I am a SMA member so I will look into that, I knew they were active there which is one of the reasons I joined. There is only one member here in Alabama and thats me. So thanks for the help. I guess Ill have to wait till August then I was hoping there was something I could do before my contract was up here. If anyone else has suggestions let me know.

My main job reference sites are backstagejobs.com and ArtSEARCH.  backstagejobs.com has nation-wide coverage, though they do specialize in Chicago area as well.  Other than that, I've worked for a Philly based touring company, but they were the smallest of small-scale, and most of the folks who I knew there have moved on.
