Rough House is looking for a non-AEA Stage Manager for their upcoming fall show, The Walls of Harrow House, an immersive, horror puppet show (not gore or slasher, but more mind horror) that features Milton Harrow a prominent architect and his various creations.
There will be some sporadic workshops over the summer, dates TBD. Regular rehearsals will take place in August and September, with roughly 4-5 per week, for about 20-25 hours total (likely 4 rehearsals in August, 5 closer to tech in mid-September). The specific schedule will be built once the show has been cast so we can take performers and Stage Managers schedules into account. Workshops will be at the Rough House studio, rehearsals will likely be at Adventure Stage Chicago, Performances in the basement of the Chopin from October 9-Nov. 10, 2018.
