2016/2017 Season

Audition dates for Theatre Charlotte's 2016/2017 season will be available soon.

General Information

Anyone interested in performing on stage at Theatre Charlotte is welcome to audition. For musicals, generally you will be required to prepare a song and bring the sheet music to the audition and come dressed to move. For non-musicals you will most likely be asked to read scenes from the script. Perusal copies of scripts are often available for those interested in auditioning. Rehearsals are usually held Sunday through Thursday evenings. Theatre Charlotte is committed to diversity on our stage and in our audience. We strongly encourage actors of color to audition.

Employment

Concessions Manager

Theatre Charlotte is accepting applications for a Part-Time Concessions Manager. Working with other front-of-house staff and volunteers, this position will manage Theatre Charlotte's concessions stand during performances. This is a part-time position on a sporadic schedule in a fun and friendly atmosphere. Responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

• Daily setup, breakdown, and storage of concessions inventory in an organized, attractive, and hygienic manner
• Fast, friendly and helpful customer service
• Tracking sales & inventory
• Facilitating cash & credit card sales
• Preparing daily sales tallies
• Assisting with restocking or pick-up of inventory and supplies
• Maintaining a clean environment in the concessions area
• Assisting with special events & parties as needed

The ideal candidate is enthusiastic, outgoing, organized, and self-motivated. The ability to provide outstanding customer service is a must. Prior bartending experience is not required; some experience in the food-service industry or working as concessions staff in a theater or performance venue is a plus. Candidates must be computer literate, be able to open a bottle of wine with a corkscrew, have good communication skills, and be a team player. Minimum age is 21.

For most performances, the Concessions Manager will be required to arrive at the theater 60 to 90 minutes before curtain and may leave after intermission, following sufficient breakdown and clean up (for an approximate total commitment of 3-4 hours per performance). The Concessions Manager will be expected to assist with any pre- or post- show events as needed. This position requires a flexible schedule and includes nights, weekends, matinees, and some holidays.
