freelance Stage Managers/Show Operators

at Berk's Nest (Anywhere)

Berk's Nest is a live comedy production company, behind shows like Rose Matafeo's Horndog (Best Show Winner, 2018), Richard Gadd's Monkey See Monkey Do (Best Show Winner, 2016), and tonnes of other exciting shows from the likes of Kieran Hodgson, Tessa Coates, Olga Koch, and Emma Sidi. This year we're producing another roster of hilarious and innovative shows from a bunch of exciting comics - and we're looking for a team who can help make these shows happen.

Our stage managers/technicians/show operators make the shows actually happen. We have lots of shows this year that need techs, ranging from the technically ambitious (live music! projection! lots of cues!) to more lo-fi stand-up, but for every show we want our acts to be working with the safest pair of hands possible. Ideally you'll have experience of working as a tech in a festival environment, but it's far more important that you're reliable, hard-working, and a problem-solver, and have experience working with acts.

Role details:

Dates: Shows mostly run July 31st - August 25th (some with days off), with technical rehearsals on the 28th, 29th, or 30th July. We also have some part runs in the second half of the festival, so if you only have limited availability please do still apply!
Pay: TBC depending on which and how many shows you'd take on, but somewhere in the region of £500 for each full run of a show (approx £20/show).
Benefits: Venue passes for Pleasance & Assembly, tickets to shows, merchandise & anything else we can get our hands on.

Please note that we unfortunately cannot provide accommodation for the duration of the Fringe, but will do our very best to help you find somewhere if needed.
