Calling all budding producers!

Are you an actor interested in getting experience in other aspects of show business? Or perhaps you're passionate about sharing your love for independent theatre with others? Maybe you're looking for an exciting volunteering opportunity over summer?

Citizen Theatre are looking for 2 dedicated and creative people to join the Producing Team as interns on their next production. The production will be a double bill of 2 extraordinary plays, one freshly returning from the Perth Fringe Festival, playing at an exciting alternative performance space in Melbourne's CBD.

There are 2 roles, both will report to the Producing Team Leader. They are both focused on the Publicity and Marketing aspects of producing a theatre event.

  • The first position will primarily involve: developing a print media strategy, coordinating mail outs and print media distribution, liasing with local businesses to create partnership opportunities and communicating with printers/graphic designer.
  • The second position will primarily involve: investigating and booking paid media opportunities, investigating and booking free media opportunities, distributing media releases, liasing with local and major media outlets.

These roles may overlap and opportunities to assist with the social media strategy are also likely.

We have decided to offer 2 roles, so that the workload is more manageable. We expect that the successful applicants will need to be able to offer 10-15 hours per week on average. We are flexible and accommodating of work commitments, but ask that you inform us of any availability restrictions in your application. Successful applicants must have easy and regular access to a computer and internet.
