Summer 2022 Seasonal Openings
The summer camp production manager serves as the point person for designers & technicians to execute a successful summer camp performance series across all seven summer production camps. The production manager will also mentor tech interns to ensure they are prepared for key components of the rehearsal process such as paper tech and tech days. Additionally, the production manager will ensure that the space is set up for tech including tech tables, headsets, run lights, etc. During Session II Tech Camp, the production manager will have the opportunity to work with tech students in specific areas of technical theatre.
The production manager should have a basic understanding of all areas of technical theatre, feel comfortable setting up basic theatrical equipment, and possess excellent communication & organization skills. PVTC uses Google Drive, Zoom, Slack, and Dropbox for all camps.
