Production Description:
Solo show (with onstage "kurogo" a silent stagehand)

During World War II, Gordon Hirabayashi, a student at the University of Washington in Seattle, fights the U.S government's order to forcibly remove and mass incarcerate all people of Japanese ancestry on the West Coast. As he struggles to reconcile his country's betrayal with his passionate belief in the U.S Constitution, Gordon begins a 50-year journey toward a greater understanding of America's triumphs and a confrontation with its failures.

We seek a stage manager for this production that will begin in Edmonton and tour multiple locations in Alberta and possibly BC. There is also potential for a position with the remount production in Toronto in the late fall of 2022.

Experience with touring is an asset.

Production Dates: rehearsals April 18-May 4, performance dates May 5-7, 2022. Additionally, a tour is tentatively scheduled for May through Alberta and BC. Possible remount in Toronto in November 2022.

SUBMISSIONS: Please email your resume to Amanda Bergen  with the subject line "[YOUR NAME] SM for Hold These Truths" Interviews will be scheduled individually if you are selected.
