Curious? Industrious? Have we got a job for you!

    April 9, 2019

    The University Players/Academic Theatre Program is currently seeking applicants for Federal Workstudy positions in the McDade Center for Literary & Performing Arts theatre spaces for the 2019/20 Academic Year. This job entails assisting with the fabrication of scenery, props and costumes, scene painting and mounting and operating sound and lighting equipment for productions in the Royal and Studio Theatres. 

    Prior experience and interest in theatre are helpful but not required. Learning new skills, good time management, creative problem solving, working collaboratively and a willingness to "get your hands dirty" are the only tools your currently need in your personal toolbox -- let us teach you while you earn.

    Interested students must qualify for Federal WorkStudy (which is typically decided/announced mid to late June) and have approximately 10 hours available per week (in no less than 2-hour increments). The work, at times, is both physically (using tools/hanging stage lights/painting/modest lifting) and mentally (Shop Math/Fractions? Lighting/Geometry? Yikes!!!) challenging and is not for everyone but if you are looking for a fun, different and creative job with flexible hours on campus, please contact Rich Larsen, Professor of Theatre Design & Technology/Interim Technical Director by email at:
