Production Assistant

How FUN is the KeyBank Rochester Fringe Festival? The Fringe is a great place for performers who enjoy showing off their creative talents, and for the Fringe-goers they entertain. But it’s even more fun to conduct hands-on work where you literally make it happen. That’s you, the Production Assistant! You’re the one who does whatever it takes to support the production of shows at Fringe curated venues. Working as part of a team of Production Assistants and other Fringe-loving colleagues, you will carry out tasks that enable smooth operation and an engaging, memorable experience for performers and spectators.

Warning: This position is not a good fit for someone who prefers a desk job and/or who thrives on predictability. You’ll be on the move constantly, addressing needs as they emerge – with equipment, people, weather, etc. You’ll be lifting things (up to 50 pounds) and fixing things and pitching in whenever, wherever, and however needed. You’ll be behind-the-scenes making things happen and interfacing with festival goers. Priorities and direction will change – your job will be as dynamic as the Fringe itself!

Does that still sound like fun to you? Great! We are looking for collaborative, flexible, energetic team players with a strong work ethic who are passionate about people, the performing arts, and Rochester. You must be responsible, a good listener, and most importantly, willing and eager to learn. Bonus points if you have prior, relevant experience.

The Fringe is committed to building a culturally diverse working and performing environment, and we want you to be part of that.

Are you ready to jump in with both feet for a few short but exciting weeks in September?

The success of the Fringe isn’t possible without hands-on, can-do Production Assistants. We are looking for you.

To apply, please send a cover letter (including your availability and why you are a great fit for this position) and resume to jobs@rochesterfringe.com. Candidates who do not submit a cover letter with the information requested may not be considered. So, show us your stuff in your cover letter!
