Seeking Scenic Artist

We are seeking a skilled scenic artist for University Theatre’s upcoming productions of: Harvey, Deathtrap, The 39 Steps, and Nunsense. Artist would set their own schedule in collaboration with Technical Director, Production Manager and production needs to successfully complete the work – time tables vary per production. Shows primarily consist of realistic interiors requiring floor treatment and age/distressing of scenic walls. The shop will base all items. There will be no drops for these productions.

University Theatre has a fully stocked paint shop with access to the performances spaces and shops 24 hours a day.

Work would be contract based. Ideal artist would paint all productions but single production contracts would be considered. Click title below for more information.
