Assistants for Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

Theater is an especially interesting activity to get involved in because, although it's commonly perceived as just "acting", it's so much more. Every show has a production team of talented and dedicated people that are essential in creating what the audience sees. Although the production team has already been chosen, the RPI Players have an offering of no-experience-needed assistant roles available to both community members and newcomers alike. These positions require only a passion or a curiosity, allowing you get involved in whatever you're interested in, whether that be building sets, doing hair, making costumes, or almost anything else you can think of.

With a position or two (or maybe even more) in mind, you should craft an email explaining why you're interested in the role(s). Talk about any relevant experience you have. But fear not if you don't have any, experience is never required for assistant positions. Take this email you've crafted and send it to the relevant person whose contact information is listed below. Be sure to send your email before the deadline passes.

Most of the positions are closing next week so that if you put in for a role and are not chosen, there are other positions for you to apply for. Decisions on each round of calls will be made within 24 hours of the role closing.

If you have any questions about one of these roles, feel free to contact the relevant master/designer.
