Other important disclosures:
Involvement with Summit Players Theatre's 2020 season requires all actors to house themselves in the Milwaukee, WI area between May and August 2020. Actors must be able to transport themselves to the Evan P. and Marion Helfaer Theatre at 1304 W Clybourn St, Milwaukee, WI 53233 for rehearsals. Housing in Milwaukee is not provided by the company.
Touring members have, in past, been consistently able to hold day jobs along with the evening and weekend responsibilities of rehearsals and performances.
This position requires willingness to travel across the state of Wisconsin and stay overnight in several locations. Members of the acting company will be provided with transportation, lodging and food for all non-local program days. Those wishing to make separate arrangements may do so, but must at their own expense.
Some lodging arrangements include camping in Wisconsin state parks. Tents will be provided by the company. Actors will be asked to provide their own sleeping bags and pillows.
Performances will take place on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, with one Monday performance on August 10. Some Thursdays will be used for brush-up rehearsals - these will be communicated at the beginning of the rehearsal process.
The acting company will be responsible for set-up and take-down of set and costumes at every location. This will be practiced as part of the rehearsal process.
Interested in camping and the outdoors not required, but a plus.
