Production Board Application Form

Thank you for your interest in applying for a Production Board role in RHPS @ Hoboken! Before filling out the form below, please read the following information:

Party definitions: The Production Board is a group of volunteers that represent the show and help the show form into a proper Rocky Horror Picture Show production. The Administrative Board is a separate entity that conducts the Production Board application process and represent RHPS at Hoboken, the LLC that manages the show. All positions, Production Board and Administrative Board, are unpaid.

For all Production Board positions, the term of service begins approximately one month before auditions open and ends a week after the last show of the production is complete. The time may be extended if the administrative board finds you have not completed your duties by the end date. Our current show dates will be October 18th. 19th, 25th, and 26th at 11:30PM.

There will be weekly Production Board meetings held online that are mandatory to attend unless an excusal is sent to the Administrative Board 24 hours before the meeting is held or there is an emergency. The exact time of the meeting will be determined by examining the schedule of all Production Board members and picking what time is best.

Being part of a Production Board role does not lock you out of holding any other Production Board role or performing in the show unless the position requires you to be somewhere else during the performance, such as the Lighting Manager needing to run lights while the performance is going on.

You are expected to attend all performances starting at 10PM unless an emergency occurs or you have provided a substitution that the Administrative Board approves.

If there are any questions, please contact hobokenrhps@gmail.com.
