American Legacy Theatre generates inviting, reimagined theatrical experiences for all people to have a voice in enriching society.

HIGHER is an original rock musical around the heroin epidemic that seeks to reduce the stigma of addiction and mental health. Developed with A.L.T., this piece was written by local artist and clinical professional, Mark Levine. HIGHER has undergone three public workshops since 2018 and is starting full production.

This piece will be produced at The Carnegie – 1028 Scott Blvd, Covington, KY 41011.

The Stage Manager will structure, manage and execute the steps required to implement a high quality stage management process that serves the integrity of the musical, bonds the other artists, aligns scheduling, and heightens audience engagement with the piece. Attendance at production meetings and understanding of staging is a given. Ideally this role will be contracted by auditions.

The ideal candidate will have the desire to help align multiple artistic tracks in partnership with the director, the ability to lead the tech rehearsal, and do board operation, if needed. The Executive Artistic Director will be available to assist with critical components along the way.

This position is eligible for a starting $350 stipend and additional referral commissions to further bolster pay, acknowledging A.L.T. financial limitations as a five-year-old organization. If interested in ASM that starts at a $250 stipend and additional referral commissions.
