Extra Opportunities

Apply to become a “super” – a non-singing actor – and your dream just might come true!  Your responsibilities may include interacting with the principal artists, chorus, or dancers, moving props or furniture around the stage, and even playing characters that help move the action along. Whatever your specific tasks, supers are an integral part of an opera production!  Our super needs vary from show to show, but at different times we need men, women, boys, and girls, of all ages, shapes, and sizes.
