House Manager Appreciation Week 2021 is November 29th through December 5th!

They are the first face of your theatre to the majority of your audience members. They deal with celebrities, politicians, Secret Service needs, drunks, latecomers, and the 95% of the audience that is no problem.

They provide hearing assistance devices, track down hearing-aid feedback mid-performance, and get hundreds of grade-school students in and out (and sometimes ensuring they get a snack). Right now countless theatres have them explaining to the same people who don't know how to silence their phone that they need to keep their mask on the *entire* show.

A good House Manager can convince a patron to come back for the next production when your current production is crap. And they've called for an ambulance more than anyone else in your venue. Ever have to deal with a patron who vomited during your show, and the family of 4 that was vomited on? And do your best to convince all of them to come back? That's what House Managers do.


You should thank them.

House Manager Appreciation Week is always the week after Thanksgiving (US), as that tends to be when most holiday shows begin in earnest, bringing large numbers of patrons who rarely attend the theatre, and thereby creating more work for your House Managers.



New internship and other rules went into effect September 1st.

Effective January 1, 2022 we will no longer accept any job listing that has a pay rate at the tipped minimum wage. We will also no longer accept listings from employers known to pay any position at the tipped minimum wage. Tips should be a bonus, not an assumption.

For information about the "why" of our new internship posting rules, click here, or "About Internships" in the sidebar.

RULE CHANGE: Effective September 1, 2021 we will no longer accept job listings that have "provided housing" but that charges employees for such housing.

RULE CHANGE: Effective September 1, 2021: Equal housing. Housing provided by the employer to non-performer, behind-the-scenes employees shall be reasonably similar or equal to housing provided for performers, specifically in regards to working heat, air conditioning, hot and cold running water, bathrooms, beds, pest control, safety, and (if not on-site) transportation. (If the actors get air conditioning in their rooms, so do the crew.)

RULE CHANGE: Effective September 1, 2021, we will no longer allow "pay us to intern here" internship listings.

RULE CHANGE: Effective September 1, 2021, no "unpaid internship" job listings will be allowed on the site.

RULE CHANGE: Effective September 1, 2021, all internship job listings shall offer pay of no less than the applicable full (non-tipped) minimum hourly wage for the area that the internship is being performed in, or if a weekly or flat fee, equal to no less than 40 times the applicable full (non-tipped) minimum hourly wage for the area that the internship is being performed in for each week of employment. If a daily fee, equal to no less than 8 times the applicable full (non-tipped) minimum hourly wage for each day of employment.

RULE CHANGE: Effective September 1, 2021, all companies wishing to post internship listings must first submit information about their internship program to OffStageJobs.com for approval. Only approved companies will be allowed to post internship listings after September 1, 2021. The link to apply is available to logged-in users in the sidebar.

All rule changes listed above will apply to all listings live on the site September 1, affecting any active listings posted prior to September 1, 2021. Additional rule changes may also begin September 1, and will be announced as we finalize them.


Things to keep in mind as you reopen and restart productions:

Our post-the-pay rule has now been in place for 3 years. Don't forget to include the numeric pay rate, starting pay rate, potential pay range, or truthfully state that there is no pay. Listings not including this information will be removed without notice to the employer/poster. To be clear, "based on experience," "contact for details," or "competitive" will not be sufficient.

If posting a number of job listings, please indicate whether these jobs were offered back to the employees who held them prior to the pandemic (also, please offer them to those employees prior to posting here).

Do not assume your former employees or regular hires left the industry during the shutdown. Contact them to be sure. While some left the industry, most are still here, waiting for shows to return. Do not forget about them.

Be safe! Get vaccinated!
Shows stopped for over a year due to COVID-19, and shows are still being halted (and money lost) due company members contracting COVID-19. Protect yourself, protect your coworkers, and protect your employment: GET VACCINATED!
