Young Actor Supervisor

Syracuse Stage is looking to hire a Young Actor Supervisor to supervise two girls, age 12, throughout rehearsals and performances of our upcoming production of Disney's Beauty and the Beast.  Supervisor responsibilities include:

  • Greeting children as they arrive for rehearsal and performances and then ensuring they are picked up at the conclusion of the day by the appropriate adults.
  • Watch over children during rehearsals to be sure they are paying attention to instructions from directors, choreographers, and stage managers.
  • Work with the children to see that they are working on homework during their off-time in rehearsal.
  • Help children learn their lines during off-time in rehearsal.
  • Assist children with getting into costume and changing costume during performances.
  • Ensure children make their entrances and exits during performances.
  • Other related duties as assigned by stage management.
Children’s rehearsals begin on Tuesday, October 22and generally run after school hours and into the evening on Tuesdays through Fridays with weekend rehearsals running from approximately 11 am – 8 pm (with a meal break). As the production approaches performances, hours will expand to include afternoon rehearsals and evening preview performances. Once the show opens on November 22, performances are typically Tuesday – Friday evenings with matinee and evening performances on weekends. There are, however, some weekday matinee performances and early morning shows for school groups. The production closes on January 5. The full schedule will be gone over in detail during an interview, along with compensation (which is hourly plus time and a half for hours worked over 40). Ideally, one Supervisor will be able to commit to the entire schedule of rehearsals and performances, however, a couple of successful candidates may be able to share the schedule. Candidates must be willing to submit to a Syracuse University background check.

To apply, please email Stuart Plymesser, Production Stage Manager, at splymess@syr.edu.
