Company Manager

This person takes care of the everyday needs of artists involved in a production, from handling their payroll to setting up their travel and housing. Company managers are often hired by a theatrical tour to accompany them from city to city, making this a great job for someone who likes to travel. However, some theatres employ a full-time, year-round company manager who works with every group of artists that comes through that particular venue.
