New Ideas Festival seeks stage managers

Are you organized and methodical? Have you ever wanted to just TELL people what to do?  Ever considered stage management?

The annual New Ideas Festival at Alumnae Theatre  is recruiting stage managers for the 15 short plays this year (check out the Dec 2 post titled New Ideas Festival 2014 – the lineup! at ).  Experience not required!  Here’s the official notice:

 New Ideas Festival (NIF) is Alumnae Theatre Company’s annual three-week juried festival of new plays, works-in-progress, and experimental theatre, with a different program each week and a workshopped reading on Saturdays at noon.
