Production/Tech Manager for Grahamstown: 11/6-14/7 (EC)
We are looking for a Production/Tech Manager for our annual National Schools Festival in Grahamstown.

The Production/Tech Manager is ideally available from 11 June (18 June the latest) on a flexi-hour basis in order to get all the pre-planning done. The Production Manager has to be available at all times during the Festival.

The planning involves contacting suitable technicians who want to stay over from National Arts Festival, drafting a move-in tech schedule and call times for the technicians, preparing the contracts for the technicians and stagehands. You will also be required to work closely with the National Arts Festival technical team in order to facilitate venue handovers.

We require someone to coordinate the venues and technicians for the festival, making sure that all venues are on track and to meet and make sure that the artists are happy and satisfied. Sometimes productions may need assistance to move from one venue to another or to fetch equipment/consumables from the Stores – which requires the use of the Grahamstown Foundation transport (i.e. Drivers licence required).
How to apply: E-mail Neville Engelbrecht:
