Oily Cart are seeking a Production Manager for new show ALL WRAPPED UP

Oily Cart is looking for an experienced and motivated freelance Production Manager to join our team from 28th October 2019 – mid February 2020.

We are looking for a freelance Production Manager with great practical and organisational skills, as well as initiative to work on ALL WRAPPED UP, a new production for children aged 0-5 years.

Unwrap a world of imagination with Oily Cart’s mischievous, wintery show for under fives. Magical characters, hilarious creatures and hidden lands are brought to life through light, shadow and music. Join us as we uncover the sensory stories hidden in scrunched up paper, and create your own after the show.

ALL WRAPPED UP welcomes young children and their families into an inclusive, accessible environment, designed specifically for under fives including those with a range of additional support needs. Audience members should feel comfortable making noise and moving around as and when they need to.
