UI Student Positions

We aren’t currently accepting new applicants for usher positions.  Watch this space, or HireaHawk for news when that changes.

Stagehands (starting wage at $10.10/hr)
The Hancher Production Department employs around 35-40 student stagehands to provide labor for a variety of artists that are presented throughout the year. Stagehands work to set up for performances, provide support during rehearsals, sound checks and performances and help to strike all equipment and restore the space afterwards. Student stagehands also provide security at our stage door during events. Stagehands learn how to work with various types of theatrical lighting and sound equipment.  The Hancher Production team will train and test all students on procedures at the beginning of employment. We are looking for people that will be available beginning in August 2017.

Typically, work in the Hancher Production Department is not regular, weekly hours. We work when there are shows. Students may not be working every week. Work shifts are often during the day as well as evening and into the late night hours on weekdays and weekends.

If you are interested in applying, please contact Danielle Wilbanks at danielle-wilbanks@uiowa.edu.

Cashiers work a regular weekly schedule in the box office, as well as a fluctuating schedule of evening and weekend shifts that revolve around the event schedule. We prize great communication skills, experience with customer service, computers and cash handling, and view interest and knowledge of the arts as a big plus.
