Volunteer Adelaide Fringe 2012: Production Assistants

at Holden Street Theatres - Adelaide

About Our Company

Holden Street Theatres is an exciting theatre company that hosts a variety of productions and events year round. We seek new approaches to making theatre and at a time when venues are closing and are threatening to close we continue to contribute to the vitality of the Arts Industry in South Australia.

For the Adelaide Fringe, Australia’s largest Arts festival, we extend ourselves to also program and operate the six spaces at Adelaide Town Hall and Thebarton Theatre. We become a hub for brilliant works, showcasing the highest caliber of local, national and international acts. Whether it be theatre, comedy, music, dance, puppetry or physical theatre: there really is something for everyone at Holden Street Theatres!

During this time we grow from our core team of four up to over fifty busy bodies and we are unable to achieve our great success without the phenomenal team of volunteers we attract every year to help run the multiple venues.

Position Description

The production team will assist room managers and technicians with production based tasks including: venue bump-in & bump-out, painting and other maintenance, turnarounds of sets and props, minor technical tasks, construction and installation of poster boards.

The role calls for someone who is efficient, hard-working and enjoys finding solutions to challenging tasks. Any experience with tools, construction or backstage work is desirable.

As an extension of the FOH team, you will be called upon to assist with FOH duties from time to time.

Required Availability for Production Assistants: A minimum of three (3-5hr) shifts during 24th February- 18th March and as often as possible in the week prior 17th February- 23rd March and post the festival 18th – 23rd March, plus induction (date to be confirmed).
