    This can pay decent. ($50 per performance) Is it worth it? Well..
    - You will be holding a baby when you’re not on stage for the aging directors wife while she continues to play the lead engenue that she’s 20+ years too old for
    -rats on your bed
    -heroin addicts everywhere: they don’t allow girls to walk home alone at night but won’t arrange transportation for you
    - you are housed above a plumbing garage with no a/c, fourth story. If you install a window unit you will be charged $25 weekly out of your paycheck. Only one window that’s probably 1 sq foot in the complex. Two “bedrooms” at most 6 people living there, the least 4.
    - you are housed in the literal ghetto- a brothel got busted on the same block as the housing

    I've worked on several shows for this company. I think they are great people. Fun to work with and easy-going. Never had a problem. I find them to be fair and considerate. If they have changed their name it hasn't been in the last 9 years. I've always known them as Pines. Nobody's perfect but I have always enjoyed my work at this theatre.

    Beware. They’re crazy. I did a show here and we had no script and only two songs on the first day of rehearsal. They changed the theater name a while ago to throw people off the track. Horrible. Disrespectful. Do not work here.

    What was their original name?

    I’m also curious about this... they don’t audition they just offer you a contract based on reel? 🤷‍♀️ Just curious...
