We’re looking for volunteer supernumeraries (“supers”) for our upcoming production of Carmen in the Granada Theatre on September 29 and October 1. Supers are non-singing, non-speaking roles. They appear as soldiers in Act 1, and members of the bullfighter’s entourage in the grand parade of Act 4.  

You’ll have the chance to stand side-by-side with world-class singers and experience the thrill of standing on the Granada stage listening to a live orchestra and professional chorus. You’ll be part of our exciting family of professional singers, dancers, musicians, craftspeople, and stage technicians, experience the adrenaline and camaraderie of live theater, and form lifelong friendships with some amazingly talented people.

What it takes:

  • Motivation, focus, and willingness to take direction
  • Mobility 
  • Ability to handle simple props, lift 15 pounds, and move safely in dimly lit environments
  • Being on time for rehearsals, performances, costume fittings and makeup calls
  • Ability to commit to a schedule weeks in advance

All supernumerary roles in Carmen are male, but we welcome talent of any gender and any age, as long as they can perform the tasks described above.  

Supers are volunteer positions, but receive a $250 honorarium and a pair of tickets to the show .   

If you are interested, please contact i[email protected].

Can you spot the supers? Carmen, 2009
