Lighting Designer


Job Type

Stage Crew


The Royal River Community Players is looking for an experienced Theater Lighting Designer who can work collaboratively with our theater team to create the perfect lighting atmosphere for our productions.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Create, design, and implement theatrical lighting that supports the story being told on stage

  • Collaborate with directors and production staff to understand the visual concept for the show and design lighting accordingly

  • Attend rehearsals as needed (Tech rehearsal is required)

  • Program lighting equipment during the performances to ensure that lighting runs smoothly throughout the production

  • Train and work with other staff and volunteers who may be assisting in lighting design or operation

About the Show:

Heidi is based on the beloved Johanna Spyri novel, which tells the story of a young girl who is taken to live with her grandfather in the scenic Swiss Alps. Heidi's endearing spirit and love for the great outdoors quickly win over her grandfather, as well as the locals, including a goatherd named Peter and his family. Although the book was written in 1880, its message of optimism, altruism, and an appreciation for nature remains as relevant today as it did back then.

Producing Heidi represents a significant symbolic milestone for our theater, as it was the play that we had planned to perform in 2020 before the pandemic struck. The show was in rehearsals when it was ultimately canceled, but we remained committed to bringing back the original cast and crew once the pandemic was over. Despite the challenges of the past 3 years, we are excited to finally make good on that promise and launch our new production.
