Stage Manager for Ringling Brothers
« on: Jun 23, 2014, 10:29 am »
Associate Production Manager (which in circus speak is a cross between ASM/SM) for Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus

This is actually my old job. I highly recommend it to YOUNG stage managers looking for touring experience. The hours are pretty grueling and along with your stage management duties you'll have to do a lot of PR events, but it's certainly an interesting job. And you get to live on a train.

The description is actually a little off. You don't really do much with the Stage Manager (circus speak for Technical Director). You do not coordinate child labor permits. There's also an additional position, the Event Coordinator, who handles a lot of the PR stuff, you just have to supervise them.
