PSF is looking for candidates for a Props Artisan or Props Carpenter position.

Working as part of the team the props artisan/carpenter must have prop or carpentry experience, with experience in both and other specialized skills a plus. Each season has its own needs so being ready to learn and try new skills is also a must. This is a very fast moving organization that often needs its props ready for rehearsal yesterday. Multitasking is a must. Experience working in a resident theater dealing with both rehearsal props and show props for different overlapping productions is a plus. Salary is $500/wk plus housing.

Regarding employment duration: There is the possibility that this position could end on July 23, pending on the number of staff hired in the department and if a candidate needed to be done earlier than August 9.

PSF will require all staff to provide proof of Covid-19 Vaccination as a condition of employment.
Full Covid Protocols and testing procedures are still being finalized for 2023 and will be adjusted based on union and CDC guidelines as the season approaches. All buildings will have MERV-13 filters in the ventilation systems.
