Company Stage Manager, Akademi


Akademi is seeking a Company Stage Manager for its acclaimed dance theatre production The Troth (directed and choreographed by Gary Clarke) which has a two-week run at Edinburgh Fringe (as part of Army@The Fringe 2018).

The immediate need is for a CSM to join the company for the Edinburgh run (10-25 August, with availability required from 6 August onwards for rehearsals in London). This is a three-week contract.

Ideally the CSM will also be available for our Autumn UK tour (3-23 November) - this will be a further three-week contract.

The CSM is required to manage and support the production on tour including:

  • stage management of the show
  • managing costumes and props
  • ensuring dancers' welfare and the company's health and safety on tour
  • supporting the Technical Manager on get-ins/get-outs
  • liaising with the Project Manager on travel, accomodation and other logistical matters
  • preparing schedules and co-ordinating the company on tour

Experience of working on similar dance/theatre touring productions is essential. Experience of working in adapted/non-theatre spaces is highly desirable.

Fees are £471 per week plus holiday pay and touring allowances in line with ITC/Equity guidelines.

To apply, please submit a CV and your availability to as soon as possible.
