Seeking Casual Theatrical Technicians

Evergreen Theatre and Community SPACES seeking casual technicians.

Make SPACE for creative communities to thrive.

Evergreen Theatre and Community SPACES is looking to hire a few individuals to join our roster of casual technicians to aid us in serving our event clients. Our event clients are generally performance-based one-time SPACES users (theatre, dance and music), with an occasional corporate meeting or presentation. Every client has individual needs and the right team members will enjoy working in the moment with clients to provide them basic theatrical style technical support.

This will be a casual/part-time contract position with a flexible schedule based around facility bookings. The hours will be predominately Friday and Saturday evenings, with the odd daytime shift available. Roster members are contacted monthly, and available shifts are offered based on client needs and availability of team members.

Rate is $24/hr.
