JOBS

Producer Wanted

CROOKS TWO – MONTAGUES AND CAPULETS

After four sell out productions over the last two years COLAB are finally embarking on the most challenging prospect yet – challenging the bard himself.

COLAB aim to create worlds that completely take audiences back, forward and sideways in time. We don’t want our audiences to visit our experiences; we want them to live them.

The producer will be in charge of the entire production. The candidate chosen will be the driving force behind the production and they will be in charge of everything but the physical production.

 

Responsibilities:

The producer is a vital role within the company. They will be given the management of a budget to deal with marketing, advertising, press and ticketing. The producer will also be responsible for the general management of the company, including creative team hiring and castings, contracting, licensing and scheduling.

They will be working alongside artistic director Bertie Watkins in realising the vision of the production.

 

Requirements:

This role will be very demanding and will require a large amount of dedication. We’re looking for a very driven and optimistic individual that is extremely good at problem solving. An understanding and enthusiasm in immersive theatre is preferable but more importantly, an attitude and ability to keep positive in stressful environments.

The most important requirement is scope – the ability to be able to pull out, see the production as a whole and see what needs to be addressed as a priority.

As a minimum, you must have produced at least one fringe or off west end production from beginning to end as a producer or general manager – assistant producers are welcome if they have a large amount of experience working on at least two productions.

Immersive, interactive, site-specific production experience is very preferable. 

Experience in working within budget, contracting, scheduling and most importantly marketing is vital.

Understanding of physical production is preferable.
