New Hope Productions is now hiring Production Staff for the 2014 Equity summer season at the Bucks County Playhouse. The Bucks County Playhouse, founded in 1939, is one of America’s oldest and most storied summer theaters, and is located right on the Delaware river in beautiful New Hope, Pennsylvania. To support this four-show summer season, we are seeking experienced technicians who are familiar with operating and maintaining advanced wardrobe, audio, lighting, and rigging systems, tools, and support spaces. These team members will directly work with the professional design team, the dedicated venue staff, and many extremely talented performing artists.

We are currently accepting resumes for the following positions:

Master Electrician/Board Op – This position requires a dependable leader in stage electrics, having strong experience with touring and repertory schedules, fine organization and crew management skills, and complete fluidity with both the ETC ION console and Sensor dimming technologies.

Audio Engineer – This position requires extensive live performance mixing experience on digital boards, as the Playhouse audio runs via a Midas Pro2 digital console. Specific and successful experience with body and hair wireless mic placement, as well as with live mixing of shows with numerous wireless and standard microphones is critical.

Wardrobe & Hair Supervisor – This position will manage a small but efficient wardrobe department. Daily tasks include building, sewing, repairs, and laundering. Previous successful experience with summer stock or touring shows is required. This position is also responsible for supporting wig, hair and any non-standard makeup needs.

Load in/Load Out & Run Crew – Although we are looking for over hire technicians with professional backstage experience in set construction and/or stage electrics to staff the load ins and outs throughout the summer season, we also require additional personnel to run the shows as properties, audio, lighting, carpentry, wardrobe, and hair crew. We are most interested in experienced technicians who are flexible and have the experience to work in more than one department.

All of these positions are part-time seasonal with no benefits. Positions will begin mid- May and run through mid-September.

The Bucks County Playhouse and New Hope Productions are Equal Opportunity Employers. You may email a cover letter and resume to milo@bcptheater.org. Please include “BCP Crew” in the subject line. No phone calls please. For more information on Bucks County Playhouse, visit www.bcptheater.org.

About The Bucks County Playhouse: Located 90 minutes from New York City, the Bucks County Playhouse opened in 1939 on the site of a grist mill dating from the late eighteenth century. Ironically, the structure was at that time in danger of demolition; however playwright Moss Hart and the local community rallied to save the building and re-opened it as a theatrical venue. In continuous operation ever since, a veritable who’s who of American theatrical royalty has trod its boards, including Kim Hunter, Helen Hayes, Kitty Carlisle, Colleen Dewhurst, Shirley Booth, Lillian Gish, June Lockhart, Grace Kelly, Robert Redford, Bert Lahr, Leslie Nielsen and Walter Matthau.
