High School Play Set Designer - Spring 2020

The San Francisco Waldorf High School is seeking a Set Designer and Builder for our annual Spring Production (May 1, 2 and 3, 2020 at ZSpace). 

Some parent volunteer support is typically available to help with this project but the designer is ultimately responsible for the build.  The designer needs his or her own tools because we do not have a shop, but there is space to build on an outdoor patio area. There is storage space on site at the school but the theater will be in a different location (ZSpace).  The designer will lead the load-in, and load-out and be available during tech week if need arises.  The designer likes teenagers, is patient, creative, flexible and experienced. 

SFWHS will pay $3000 for this project on an independent contractor basis.

Interested parties should send resumes with references and images of work to Kelly Lacy, Theater Arts Director, klacy@sfwaldorf.org
