Single Carrot Theatre seeks a qualified CREW DRIVER for our upcoming production of Promenade: Baltimore!
This production does not take place in a theatre but rather on the streets around the city of Baltimore while the audience watches actors from a bus that drives a 12 mile round trip journey from Single Carrot Theatre. We are looking for a Crew Driver that is adaptive and flexible.
About the Promenade: Baltimore
This dynamic production, a collaboration between SCT and Hungarian theatre company StereoAkt, invites its audience to board a bus that traverses the city, passing through neighborhoods both familiar and unknown. Audience members watch through the windows as actors on the street present poetic expressions of everyday life in Baltimore, complimented by a live-mixed soundscape of music, narration, and stories based on and told by neighborhood residents.
Responsibilities and Expectations
Crew Drivers for this show will be responsible for transporting the actors along a specified route to specific locations where scenes take place. Actors must be in place when the bus of audience members reaches the location.
Crew Drivers MUST have access to their own vehicle.
Drivers will be reimbursed for mileage during rehearsals and shows. This does NOT include your journey to and from the theater/ starting/ ending point.
Crew Drivers may be asked to coordinate with Stage Managers via cellphone and/or radio to make sure bus is on schedule and actors are in place.
The Crew Drivers are required to attend almost all rehearsals and performances.
The ideal candidate is punctual, highly organized, with strong attention to detail, and comfortable working in highly collaborative environments.
Pay is a $350 honorarium, to be paid within two weeks of the end of the contract.

Start date: April 10th
Rehearsals: May 1-27th
Tech: May 28th - June 1st
