– Drafting production staff briefing & other supporting documents 

– Overseeing changes to Run of Show, rehearsal schedules, and other key production documents throughout the process

– Preparing, updating, and overseeing execution of vendor timelines for load-in

– Ordering production supplies and rentals (e.g. gobos, step and repeats, supplementary furniture or staging props)

– Attending site inspections

– Creating production “bibles” for each event (stage plots, run of show, talent rosters, media list, post-event images, etc.)

– Securing event freelancers, tracking hours, and processing freelancer invoices

– Providing onsite support regarding AV and production logistics for all events, working towards oversight of entire events as things progress

– Updating project timelines
