6. NääsPeksi is looking for producers!

If you have a passion for musical theatre and improvisation, this is your chance to fulfill your dreams – apply to be producer for the NääsPeksi 2022!

Speksi’s producers (3-4) work through the year, beginning in spring and ending after the autumn’s show-run. Producers are responsible of the recruitment of the creative and technical talents, deciding schedules for the autumn’s performances and maintaining finances of the production. Therefore persistence, organizational skills, financial responsibility and time management are a must for a producer. Fluent Finnish is not required but it is a major asset as the working language for the production will be Finnish.

That’s great! Send your application to this form at the latest on Monday 14th of February at 23.59. We’ll get back to you and arrange an interview with you after the application period!
