Advertising Agent

The advertising agent, also called the ad representative, is hired by the producer or general manager of a stage production (theater, concert, or other event) to design and execute an ad campaign with the sole aim of selling tickets. Unlike strategies for consumer products, there is immediacy to advertising a show. There is no shelf life for a performance ticket.

Model Builder

Helping to communicate the set designer’s vision through a physical representation is the model builder. In design meetings, it is understandably difficult for others to fully imagine the finished scenic product based on two-dimensional sketches. Therefore, the scale model becomes the most important and effective tool in representing the world in which a stage show will live.

Associate Sound Designer

The associate sound designer is an assistant and apprentice to the sound designer on theatrical productions and live events. This person aids in the development of all audio elements, as well as collaborating with the stage manager and crew of audio technicians.

Script Reader

In entertainment production, a script reader is the gatekeeper between the scriptwriter and the development executive with the power to greenlight scripts. This person keeps the crap off the boss’s desk and puts forward only the material with real promise.

The Public Theater

The Public Theater was founded by Joseph Papp as the Shakespeare Workshop, and currently resides in the former Astor Library in the East Village. The organization presented the world premiere of the musical Hair and is dedicated to producing new works by emerging artists, as well as Shakespeare and other classic material.

Lighting Supervisor

At a resident theatrical company or on a large touring production, there is usually a lighting department supervisor.

Lighting Console Programmer

The lighting designer typically hires the lighting console programmer (sometimes called the moving light programmer) as an assistant with the express purpose of programming the show during the rehearsal phase.

Press Agent

Press agent is the formal title given to members of the Association of Theatrical Press Agents & Managers, though members and non-members alike wear the synonymous moniker of press representative. These individuals work on theatrical productions as part of the larger marketing initiative that includes paid advertising, promotions, and press relations.

Wardrobe Supervisor

Upon opening night of a theatrical production, the costume designer’s work is done and the wardrobe supervisor assumes the role of wardrobe department head.

Scenic Painter

A bit of artfully applied paint can fool an audience into believing almost anything. Scenic painters are skilled in the art of deception and mimicry, transforming wood flats into a stylized Nile delta or a city square in 19th-century Seville.
