Production – Job Descriptions

Theatre Job Descriptions

On this page you will find job descriptions for most if not all of the production assignments awarded at Northwest Missouri State University. Your mentor will give you a hard copy of your particular job description when you meet to discuss your assignment. They are also provided here for your reference at any time. Feel free to read the other job descriptions as someday, you may be assigned to that position. It would be a good idea for EVERYONE to read and become familiar with the stage managers handbook!

If there is not a link for a particular job description, that means that it is in progress and will be up soon!
