The Elgin Fringe Festival is an uncurated, multi-disciplined arts festival, featuring dance, theater, music, visual art, and the undefined at venues in downtown Elgin, September 9-16, 2018. The position of Tech/Venue Manager is not unlike the traditional role of "Stage Manager" in that you will provide practical and organizational support to the performers, stage crew and technicians throughout the production process. The position IS unlike a traditional "Stage Manager" where each applicant will be responsible for running their own technical portion of the performances, i.e. running sound and lights.
You will also be the EFF representative during performance week, making sure that the productions run smoothly, have a firm grasp on the schedule and ticketing system, and that all festival goers are as safe and happy as can be. The Tech/Venue Manger is the "go-to" for each venue, and must be able to command any and all situations that arise.
(THIS IS A PAID POSITION. CONTRACT RUNS 9/10-9/17. PAYMENT = $500. LUNCH WILL BE PROVIDED SATURDAY AND SUNDAY.)
