This is an exciting time join Polka Theatre’s busy and ambitious team, in the role of Theatre Technician. You will support the Technical Manager and work alongside casual and freelance technicians and contractors. Together, you deliver the technical aspects of our own productions and facilitate visiting companies and events. What would you be doing? Working on the fit-ups during production weeks and get outs at the end of the production or event as well as operating and programming lights, sound, video and flying or set pieces. It could also include carpentry and driving if you have the necessary skills. Polka produces between 5 and 8 new in-house productions each year across its two theatre spaces. Around half of these are co-productions and partners have previously included Complicité, Little Angel Theatre, Royal and Derngate and The Royal Opera House. We undertake some touring and also receive companies to our Wimbledon home, although the majority of the year is presenting our home-produced work. Having our own workshop means we build all our own sets as well as sets for other theatre companies. The production team also facilitate various projects (including education activities and community and fundraising events) which take place in other areas of the building or at other venues.
