SM Intern Needed-Mountain Playhouse, Jennerstown PA
« on: Apr 17, 2013, 04:20 pm »
Mountain Playhouse in Jennerstown, PA is looking for a Non-AEA Stage Management Intern for their 4 show summer 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" postion is required for CORST Z theatres. You will be assisting two different AEA SMs, who alternate shows. You would NOT alternate shows. You would work all of them.

The position pays $150 per week, and comes with housing. The first rehearsal is June 5, and the summer season closes on August 18. There MAY also be an Intern position available for the fall season of two shows. You must be an adult, 18 years old, or over, to apply. Transportation is not reimbursed.

You may send resumes to TSMarafino@aol.com, with "SM Intern Resume" in the Subject Line

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. If you are not willing to work hard and spend many hours at the theatre, do not apply. And there is one day off every OTHER week, not every week.

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.

If you have questions, feel free to PM me! If you'd like to send me your resume and have me forward it, I can do that, too.  Meanwhile, management looks forward to seeing your applications.

This SM-Intern position was filled a couple of weeks ago. Sorry about the tardy post.
