Mountain Playhouse in Jennerstown, PA is looking for a Non-AEA Stage Management Intern for their 2 show FALL season. This SM Intern assists the AEA Stage Manager in rehearsals, prep., paperwork, and does whatever is necessary on the deck during performances. Mountain Playhouse operates under the AEA-CORST contract, and this Non-AEA "ASM" position is required for CORST Z theatres.
The position pays a small stipend and housing is provided. The dates are Sept. 3-Oct.13.   Transportation is not reimbursed.

That's the official portion of this posting. Here is the unofficial information, from me, personally:

This theatre is in the country. If you will not be happy in a rural environment, do not apply. There is no Starbucks, no grocery store, nothing except a diner and a gas station convenience store, within walking distance. The nearest shopping district is about 8 miles away. However, it is beautiful there! If you like the country, and all that goes with it, then by all means, apply. You will be happiest, if you have a car at your disposal.

The theatre is an old Grist Mill. The technical facilities are basic. If you only want to work in a high tech environment, do not apply.

The SM Intern will rehearse one show while performing another. In other words you will rehearse all day and then be called for performances (both matinees and evenings), and do your paperwork when you can. This is the nature of Stock.

The housing is shared, rustic and basic. There is no cable or TV unless you pay to install and maintain the service. If you require this in your life, you won't be happy here, unless you have your own TV and can afford to pay the bills.

Many of the AEA actors who work here, have been returning here for many years. You will be working with pros, who gather around a bonfire at night, play music, and have a ball together.

Management looks forward to hearing from you!
