Freelance Production Stage Manager Wanted

at Melbourne Shakespeare - Melbourne

Attention Stage Managers!

Melbourne Shakespeare Company are currently seeking a new Production Stage Manager to join our team for our upcoming production of Much Ado About Nothing at the St Kilda Botanical Gardens. The production will run during weekends from the 2nd December - 17th December 2017. 

Our last PSM was with us for 3 productions and we are ideally looking for someone who is interested in joining the company for multiple productions across the summer with an interest to join our board of directors.

Our productions are full scale outdoor Shakespearean productions featuring live music and casts of up to 20 people. Although we are an independent company we pride ourselves on professionalism and the high quality of our productions. 

As our productions are partially council funded the ideal candidate will have experienced in writing risk assessments and be familiar with  OHS requirements (although training in these areas can be given to the right candidate). 

At Melbourne Shakespeare we all LOVE what we do and we are looking for someone with the same passion and love for creating accessible outdoor theatre to join our family. We are proud to have been a springboard for many creatives (cast and crew) who have gone on to work for MTC, Australian Ballet, Australian Opera, and The Globe and others.

At present our productions are run on a profit share basis with an open book policy.

If you are keen to be involved or would like further information please email Kevin at

"Never a dull moment, every beat of the performance was a fantastic tribute to Shakespeare" - Australian Stage

"This fun loving, easy and gut-bustingly funny reawakening of Shakespeare’s timeless comedy is a monolith amongst Melbourne’s independent theatre scene."- Radio Monash
