AEA 3rd Off-Broadway Networking event

From the Equity website

The Third Annual Off-Broadway Stage Managers Networking Event is scheduled for Monday June 30th from 1pm until 5pm in the Equity Council Room, 14th Floor of the Equity Building. This event is an exciting opportunity for Equity Stage Managers to meet with producers and general managers from Off-Broadway commercial ventures and institutional not-for-profits. It’s a chance to exchange resumes and get a few minutes of critical face time as a precursor to having an interview when positions come available. It’s a jobs fair for the Off-Broadway Stage Management community, and last year’s event resulted in many subsequent interviews and a fair number of job offers.

The Second Annual Off-Broadway Stage Managers Networking Event included representatives from Playwrights Horizons, The Public Theater, New York Theatre Workshop, Second Stage Theatre, The New Group, Primary Stages, Women’s Project, Cesa Entertainment, Mars Theatricals, and many more. We expect a similar level of participation this year from the Off-Broadway League members.

After a very successful event last year utilizing the “speed dating” format, this year’s event will be structured in a similar way. We expect between 10 and 20 producers/general managers to participate, and so Stage Managers will have to bring with them 20 copies of their resume to exchange, and will also have to sign up and commit to a “rotation hour” during which they will be guaranteed to meet with all Off-Broadway League participants.

Stage Managers may rotate in pairs, depending on how many sign up, so if you would like to rotate with another Stage Manager you work with regularly, please confirm as a pair. Participation will be limited to Stage Mangers who did not have the opportunity to attend last year. If you participated last year, your name may be added to the waiting list and you will be contacted if space allows.

To sign up for your rotation hour (1pm, 2pm, 3pm or 4pm), please call Erin at 212-869-8530 x377 between 11am and 4pm any time after June 9. Erin will be able to give more information and details when you call to sign up.
