We wouldn’t be the fastest growing independent company in San Francisco without your help. Below, read about the different ways to get involved, from volunteering to job openings.
Doing it our way since 1998, Custom Made has employed hundreds of artists, administrators and technicians, many of whom have gone on to LORT theatres, as well as Broadway and film/television careers.
Custom Made casts actors from all over the Bay Area. We attend Theatre Bay Area’s general auditions, and when warranted have our own open calls and general auditions.
We are always accepting resumes and headshots. For consideration please email to gabrielaross at yahoo dot com
Custom Made is always excited to receive resumes and portfolios from local designers and technicians (stage managers, too!) We offer a stipend in line with other small, independent theatres and hire on a show-by-show basis.
We are currently actively looking for submissions from:
Stage Mangers (send resume to labrams at custommade dot org)
Lighting Designers (send resume to labrams at custommade dot org)
Scenic Designers (send resume to labrams at custommade dot org)
Costume Designers (send resume to labrams at custommade dot org)
Properties Designers (send resume to labrams at custommade dot org)
Custom Made is always looking for volunteer help, from selling concessions at our show to helping with whatever your area of speciality is.
Front of house volunteers get to see the show for free when they volunteer. In exchange for arriving early (usually an hour before showtime) we ask you to help set up and then sell concessions, present a friendly face to our patrons, and then grab your seat! Volunteers should write company manager, Paul Stout, at pstout at custommade dot org. All other areas of volunteering, please contact Executive Director Leah Abrams at labrams at custommade dot org
