Would you relish the opportunity to join our small, close-knit production team as production manager for our productions?

And would you enjoy working out of our historic site in Clapham North and transitioning to Woking with us in September 2022?

We are looking for a production manager to lead on Italia Conti’s productions, based initially at our Avondale and Sheridan theatres in Clapham North (until the summer of 2022) and from September 2022 in Woking - and at external venues.

It's a busy, thoroughgoing role, which encompasses the full production management remit. This includes managing the production for all Italia Conti shows and performances, resources, budgets and the production team staff and freelancers. You will ensure productions run smoothly and to schedule, that everyone is in the right place at the right time. Also, schedule, staff and co-ordinate all rehearsals, get ins/outs, performances and production meetings, taking the lead in any production department activity. 


There’s never been a better time to join us - or a more exciting one as we gear up to move to a brand new facility in Woking – and you will help us with the transition. Make your mark and be part of our committed, high-performing team. We look forward to hearing from you.
