Overview

Chicago Kids Company (now celebrating their 27th season), presents one-hour musical adaptations of fairytales. The shows feature professional adult actors and are presented to children ages 2 to 10 in several different theaters. Their shows are held on select weekday mornings at 10:30am and select Saturdays at 1:00pm.

In 2019 they added the Mainstage Theater at the Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles, IL. as their newest venue.

Chicago Kids Company is seeking a part-time Tech Crew to run the shows at this new location.  They are hiring a Stage Manager, Backstage crew, and Sound and Light operators.  Each season Chicago Kids Company will present 4-5 musicals at the Mainstage Theater at Pheasant Run.

·     Hours:  9am-12pm on select weekdays, and 11:30am-2:30pm on select Saturdays.  Plus a few Tech rehearsal hours.

This is paid, part-time work:  $12/Hour.
