MDCC is a Birmingham community company for high-end amateurs and emerging professionals. Its main activity is an annual short tour of an outdoor Shakespeare play. This year's production of The Tempest is looking for a Stage Manager with both some experience and who can travel independently to rehearsals and performances. MDCC is a friendly group of some great, hard-working people that all want to get on in the world of theatre. No-one is paid as it is a voluntary group, but the company has enough credibility to be known as a place where actors and other creatives work to develop their skills, or just work for the group as if it were a 'charity' client e.g., our marketing bod and this year's director, who works professionally but is undertaking the show to put on a Shakespeare with a larger cast than is normally possible on the outdoor Shakespeare circuit. It is also a credible addition to any CV: venues are prestigious and are Aston Hall, Birmingham Botanical Gardens, the Lichfield Festival, Forge Mill Museum, Avoncroft Museum and Pembroke Castle (yes, we get to play with a massive castle). There is also the possibility that the production will get to perform an extract at the RSC in the autumn, but you would not be signing up for that at this point, as it is a bit much to ask - but the opportunity is there. If you are interested, contact us for the 'vision thing' for the show, to get a handle on what the director plans, and to see if is a production you would like to SM for.
