Theatre by the Lake are looking to connect with excellent Stage Managers and would like to invite anyone interested in working with us in the future the opportunity to have an informal meeting with our Company Manager Sophie Acreman.

We passionately believe that theatre is for everyone, and we are committed to making sure that everyone has the opportunity to get involved. We want to work with creative, passionate, and committed people from diverse backgrounds, who will bring their unique skills and experiences to help to continue to make TBTL the amazing and extraordinary place it is.

We are a busy producing venue with a reputation for creating top notch theatre productions, as well as serving our community as a year-round busy arts centre hosting all sorts of different artforms and festivals. We produce or Co-Produce in the region of 6 productions a year, all requiring fabulous and engaged Stage Managers.
Recent Co-Producers include: Goblin Theatre, Hull Truck Theatre, Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse, Octagon Theatre Bolton, Polka, Stephen Joseph Theatre, Watford Palace Theatre

We welcome and encourage job applications from people of all backgrounds. We have identified that our Stage Management teams are currently under-representative of certain communities and so we particularly welcome applications from global majority and disabled people.

All our Stage Managers are employed on a freelance basis and paid in line with the Equity/UK Theatre Sub rep agreement for Grade 3 theatres
