The Taproot and Sanctuary Liaison is an employee of Taproot Theatre Company. Their job can be broken into two categories: sound mixer and building supervisor.
Sound Mixer: Whoever holds this position will have sufficient skills (determined by TTC) to set-up, run and teardown the sound equipment necessary for each service. This includes, but is not exclusive to: setting up monitors and microphones and patching them into the sound board, mixing the band for a clear sound both in monitors and in the house, running the light board, setting up the fold-up screen, setting up the projector and running playback music. The liaison will have sufficient knowledge (determined by TTC) of Taproot’s sound system including how to patch monitors and troubleshoot feedback. They will be in charge of the complete sound set-up of Taproot and Sanctuary equipment including monitors, microphones and music stands as well as their tear-down; they are not required to handle Sanctuary’s gear outside of the sound set-up including the slide computer.
Building Supervisor: The liaison is hired by Taproot for the purpose of supervising the building. This supervision includes, but is not exclusive to: turning on/off lights, alarming the building, unlocking doors, watching for potential damage to scenery, props and other TTC equipment and enforcing the rules and regulations stated in the contract between TTC and Sanctuary. As TTC’s building supervisor we expect the liaison to help Sanctuary problem solve or troubleshoot any situation that might arise related to their service that seemingly conflicts with TTC’s rules (i.e. placement of candles, blocking fire exits, artistic expressions); ultimately the attitude of the liaison is to mediate rather then dictate, except for reasons of safety to any person, equipment or production item in which case if no compromise can be made, the liaison has full authority to speak on behalf of TTC. As building supervisor, the liaison is not responsible to set-up, teardown or clean up any Sanctuary equipment (including nursery items or hospitality); however, the liaison is ultimately responsible for leaving the building exactly the way it was found. The liaison will write a weekly report that itemizes the events of the day as well as any situation, compromise or issue that arose that day.
This position is Sundays from 6am-12pm unless otherwise arranged (alternating Sundays with the other Liasion). Pay is $16.67 per hour. The position has two supervisors: Technical Director and Production Stage Manager. Liasion should be comfortable in a religious environment.
If interested, please submit a resume to Production Stage Manager, Abigail Pishaw, at email@example.com.
Those who apply before December 18 will be given priority consideration.
