Health & Safety

This year, every student in the production must bring a face mask to every rehearsal. The producer will determine whether the company is required to wear masks at each rehearsal based on the current risk level of the community and surrounding communities. Participants will also be required to make frequent use of hand sanitizer.

Are you the student we’re looking for?

We need dedicated and responsible students to assist the creative professionals working on our large-scale musical production.  If you have any interest in directing, stage management or production management, this will be a great way to see these professions from the inside. Muse Machine members in grades 7–12, ages 12 and older are eligible. No experience is necessary. Be aware that this is a time-intensive commitment.  You will need to be available at many rehearsals (although we are very flexible) and all performances.

You can request a 15 minute interview appointment below. Any sort of resume or portfolio is certainly not required, though if you would like to bring something, you may.

• Generally assist the directors, producer and stage managers
