Supernumeraries are people of all ages who share the stage with operatic artists. Supers volunteer their time and act on the stage as non-speaking, "extras." Supers can play soldiers, townspeople, nuns, Gypsies, as well as many other important stage-filling roles. A Super's enthusiasm and cooperation, and general interest in theater, go a long way to making a good candidate for these opportunities!
If you wish to apply for a supernumerary position, please send resume and headshot to Zackery Hayhurst, Director of Artistic Administration.
Salary and Benefits
