The Rude Mechanical Theatre Co

You have to like being outdoors and enjoy that kind of life to do it. But if you do then it is a good experience. Our standard is very high; we have been funded by the Arts Council for the last fifteen years to work in small rural communities across the South of England (Kent to Devon) and this will be our twenty-first year touring to village greens and pub fields.  

Duties include:

Driving the van & pageant wagon (mobile stage). The person must have at least a BE licence.

Lighting the show, but we light with gaslights. We tour to venues without electricity.

Assembling the portable stage. It is a simple one-person job for a practical person & generally helping with get-in’s and get-out’s.

Liaising with the front of house teams in each village.

Assisting the director during rehearsals by being on the book & recording moves.

Wages are £481 per week + £120.60 per week for per diems. All accommodation is provided, so doesn’t have to come out of the per diems.

It is a 15 week contract. We operate the Equity pension scheme.

The person needs to be at least 25, calm & enjoy outdoor life.
