The Alumnae Theatre Company’s FireWorks Festival is looking for Stage Managers and Assistant Stage Managers.
FireWorks is a festival held annually that focuses on the development and production of new full-length plays and endeavours to push the limits of performance through inventive design and directorial choices. Rehearsals on our three plays start in September and each play will run for one week during November 4 to 22, 2015. The plays are:
DIVINE WRECKS A high school god falls for the wrong girl, his teacher. A dark tale of heart break and revelations, Divine Wrecks explores the nature of love without boundaries. A modern take on a classic tale.
COTTAGE RADIO Inspired by the true events of the Goderich, Ontario 2011 F3 class tornado, Cottage Radio explores the effect of the horrific storm on the fictional, yet very recognizable Marley clan. The family is forced to deal with the horrific events of the storm that are currently bringing them together, while confronting all the past events that kept them apart for so long. The play includes gorgeous original indie rock songs performed by members of the collective live on stage, while the play gently and graciously combining humour and drama in surrounding scenes.
RADICAL The story of a forgotten Canadian hero, Dr. Vera Peters, and her fight to alter breast cancer treatment. Spurred on by patient outrage, memories of her mother’s suffering, and her own diagnosis of breast cancer, Peters embarks on a quest to find a gentler alternative to the mutilating radical mastectomy - and in the process sets the surgical world against her.
This is also an excellent volunteer opportunity for recent graduates of a theatre production program to gain experience working in a festival environment. The Alumnae Theatre is located in Toronto at 70 Berkeley Street, corner of Adelaide). If you’re interested in any of these positions and available during this time period, please contact us at FireWorksATC@gmail.com.
