Website Redtwist Theatre

Storefront Theatre in Edgewater’s Bryn Mawr Historic District

We’re looking to add a scenic painter to our team for our second show of the season!  The unit set is an apartment.  If you haven’t been to Redtwist before, it’s a very small space that has a focus on immersive design (easy to do in our very intimate blackbox).

Production dates:
Rehearsals beginning in early November
Load-in: Jan 1 (though the space is available during the day the previous week, and likely more than that with the holidays.  Our previous show strikes Nov 14, so build is tentatively scheduled to begin after that date.  Prior to that, there is some build/painting space.)
Tech: Sun, Jan 2
Prev: Thurs-Sat,  Jan 6-8
Opening: Sun, Jan 9
Closing/Strike: Sun, Feb 13

COMPENSATION: Redtwist is not able to provide a living wage. For clarity, our largest expense in our budget is rent, and then artist stipends. We understand that this environment may not be what you’re looking for. If that’s true at this time, thanks for considering us, and we wish you well!

COVID: We’re currently asking for proof of vaccination upon entry to the theatre, as well as requiring masks. We know that some folks are immuno-compromised and can’t get the vaccine, and in those specific cases we’ll be asking those folks if they’ll please wear a mask while inside the theatre.

VALUES: Racial equity is a core value on the journey to anti-racism, and Redtwist values representation of the global majority. We include this in every initial contact and job posting, so that if a collaborator isn’t willing to be a part of that effort, this note can help them recognize that this may not be the right role for them.
