Location, Dates & Times
Lighting Designer required for Toronto Irish Players' live, in-person theatre production of The Hen Night Epiphany by Jimmy Murphy, at The Alumnae Theatre, 70 Berkeley Street, moving into the theatre October 15, with set-up, tech and rehearsal time October 16-19, opening October 20 and closing November 5. The play is set outside a remote cottage in Ireland on a summer’s evening.
The Company is primarily volunteer (producer, director, stage management, actors). A nominal honorarium is offered for this position of lighting designer.
The Company is adhering to all Covid requirements and all those working on the production and in the audience must be double-vaccinated and willing to provide proof.
HOW TO APPLY
Please send a resume and email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Indicate any familiarity with work with community theatre resources and schedules and recent production design work.
Lighting Designer must be experienced in providing designing for a theatre of about 140 seats (stage approximately 28 x 30). If you've never lit at Alumnae before, it's a traditional high, full proscenium arch stage with no curtain. Some of the light grid is over the stage and some of it is over the audience, so there could be some ladder work needed if anything additional needs to be hung, moved or gelled — we will endeavour to get someone to help for ladder work.
Five women come together to help clear out a run-down cottage a week before the wedding of its new owner, Una. Joining her on this hen night of sorts are her two best friends, Kelly and Tríona, and her soon to be mother-in-law, Olive, and Olive's best friend, Anta. But Una is keeping a secret that, if revealed, will destroy all hopes of her dream wedding and living happily ever after with the love of her life. As the play unfolds we see the women, one by one, forced to confront awkward truths of their own.
