Need a job? Look no further.
Earlier this week I talked about how we get a lot of script submissions, workshop invitations, and so on, sent to our site, which is why we started our reading series. Well, the 2nd most popular inquiry at The Producer’s Perspective is about how to get a job in the Broadway or Off-Broadway arena.
Getting a job in the Broadway or Off-Broadway theater world ain’t easy. It’s not that it requires the skills of a surgeon, it’s just that it’s a very closed-door community that likes to hire from within. So, sometimes it’s hard to pry that door open.
The good news?
Once you do get that door open and get inside (and you will), that door usually slams shut and we never let you out.
But where do you find those jobs?
Introducing the Classifieds on ProducersPerspective.com!
As a response to the many of you that are looking for opportunities in the theater job market, and since it’s 10:1 bet that people reading theater blogs are probably the most qualified group of applicants out there, I thought I’d house a place on the site where those with the jobs can reach those of you looking for jobs.
There are categories in the Classifieds for all different types of gigs. We’ll even be including some auditions for the actors that I know read the blog.
In the future, we’ll be expanding the Classifieds to include all sorts of stuff that creators of theater are looking for, from space rental to writing partners to a live boa constrictor for that Adam ‘N Eve musical you’re working on.
We’re hoping to be the Match.com of the producing world.
Check back often, because it will be constantly updated. Or add it to you RSS and get constantly updated. And we’ll have a signpost on the home page of the site reminding you as well.
Here’s to seeing what’s behind the door in 2010.
