Scenic Designer for two-year project - (posted 1/8/18 by Music Theatre of Madison)

Music Theatre Madison, a twelve-year old professional musical theatre company focused on new and rare musicals, is seeking an imaginative set designer for a new workshop and production of Nathan Fosbinder's new musical Hephaestus, the story of Greek mythology's biggest underdog. Learn more about the organization at http://www.mtmadison.com./

ABOUT: The show will start as a workshop performed at the Madison Opera Center in June of 2018, where audiences will give feedback and have the opportunity to hear early demos and view renderings, set ideas, and vision boards. For this portion of the project, the designer will work with the director to create a concept and provide renderings and a 3-D model to be displayed. Please inquire directly for information on the size and scale of the space the renderings will be created for.

The workshop portion will be translated into a full world premiere production in 2019, most likely at the Fredric March Play Circle in the Wisconsin Union (dates are being worked out and will be known soon). This full production will be informed by audience feedback from the workshop portion. The designer will tweak their concept and execute it with technical support for the full staging. Dates and location will be confirmed by spring, 2018.

The concept is very open-ended at this point. We are looking for a designer with great innovation and flexibility. A fondness for Greek mythology and a love of non-literal, fantasy style is a plus!

COMPENSATION: This is a paid contract position, with a stipend of $250 for the 2018 rendering work and an additional larger sum TBD in 2019.

TO SUBMIT: If interested, please submit resume, photos of your work, and a brief note about why you are interested in the project to kmurcott@mtmadison.com. Deadline for submissions is March 1, 2018. For questions, e-mail info@mtmadison.com.
