Production Manager

Hosted by Buddies in Bad Times Theatre

Established in 1979, Buddies in Bad Times Theatre is Toronto’s leading destination for artistically rigorous alternative theatre and a world leader in developing queer voices and stories for the stage. Buddies offers a year-round program that includes a full season of queer theatre, new works festivals, artist residencies, and intergenerational training and education initiatives.

We have dedicated time over the last year addressing the company’s inherent complicity in perpetuating racism, anti-Blackness, and ableism. There is a new section to our website dedicated to updating our community on the ongoing work towards better equity practices in an effort to remain accountable to this very important work. 

The Production Manager works in collaboration with the Technical Directors to lead all production efforts including hiring and supervising production crew. They also facilitate communication between all members of the creative team and venue staff to ensure that production elements are executed safely, on time, and within budget. The production team share the goals of maintaining an anti-racist, safe, and sustainable production department, with a focus on health and safety oversight and production expertise. The Production Manager is ​​a self-motivated, organized leader who has the ability to multitask in a spontaneous and creative work environment.

Application Deadline: October 1, 2021

Accessibility

Buddies in Bad Times is a semi-accessible venue for workers. Our main entrance has a ramp and push button entrance, and we have a key-operated lift to the accessible washrooms on the lower level. Our offices, theatre venues, and tech booths do not have push button access at this time, but we are working to provide barrier-free access to these areas. You can find more information on upcoming accessibility projects on our website.

We encourage applications from queer, transgender, Indigenous, BIPOC, d/Deaf and disabled applicants. 

If you are experiencing any obstacles relating to the application, proposed deadline, or interview dates, please reach out and we will work to meet your needs.
