Position: Designers for 2018-19 Season

Flashback Theater Co. (FbTC) seeks to build a roster of designers of various backgrounds, including sound, costumes, scenic, and lighting, to hire in the upcoming season.

Location: Somerset, Kentucky
Pay: Stipend based on experience and production complexity.
Design budgets: $500 – $1500, based on production complexity and elements required.

About the Season

Our productions take place in a black box style space with flexible seating and setting arrangements. We are located in downtown Somerset, and the space can hold 40-90 audience members, depending on the stage set up.

  1. Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley will open on December 20, 2018. It is set following the events of the literature classic, Pride and Prejudice.
  2. Boats Against the Current will open on February 28, 2019. It is an abstract representation of a man’s experience as he battles dementia.
  3. Pirates of Penzance will open on June 6, 2019. It will be set in a late Renaissance period, but a somewhat romanticized version of it, as in the The Princess Bride.

Description and responsibilities:

Designers will work with the director, stage manager and other crew members of a production to design and execute production elements. You are expected to attend production meetings, all technical rehearsals, and strike.

You will create a design plot and a visual or audible representation of your design (renderings/model/etc), and will help to coordinate the execution of their designs by building, renting, or sourcing the items needed. FbTC will assist the process by helping to coordinate volunteers as needed.

To apply:

Email a design resume and cover letter, including which production you are most interested in working on to: sommer@flashbacktheater.co. If you have an online portfolio, please include a link in your email.
