Producer – May Kinoshita
Our producer is simultaneously the president of the Blueprint Masquerades. She is in charge of managing the overall production, be it assembling a motivated and capable crew or organizing financial backing. She is ultimately responsible for making sure our production progresses from conception to performance.
Director – Astrit Abazi
The director is in charge of organizing annual auditions and selecting cast members. When the cast is complete, it is the director’s task to instruct and guide the actors towards a mature onstage performance and to convey the play’s message to the audience.
Stage designer – Sarah Rechsteiner
Every production takes place on a stage of some sort, and it is the stage designer’s responsibility to create the space surrounding the actors. In consultation with the director, she decides what needs to be on stage at what time and how the set will complement the actors’ performance.
Treasurer – Andrin Albrecht
While it is the producer’s job to find sponsors, it is the treasurer’s task to allocate an appropriate amount of money to each department. He must consider the purchase of play rights, how much the stage will cost or what to invest into advertising. Moreover, he must ensure that none of the departments exceed their budget.
Marketing manager – Olivia Fischer
Ideally, the play would sell itself. However, audience members first must find their way to a performance. Marketing is in charge of maintaining a loyal audience base and animating potential new spectators to see the play. Among others, this requires using channels such as print or social media.
