Casting is responsible primarily for two jobs: One Acts & Auditions. Duties include helping with preparatory materials, collecting auditioners' dues, and working the table at the auditions themselves.
The Casting Department also produces HOOLIGAN’s One Acts Festival in the fall. Casting Associates aid in the development of the festival as stage managers, set crew, and assistant producers.
Development is responsible for overseeing all fundraising efforts for HOOLIGAN’s main stage productions.
Our team manages fundraising opportunities such as textbooks, PALs, and TV Tapings for cast and crew for each show. We also write grants to apply for UCLA funds to support our productions. Through weekly office hours and regular outreach, DEVO is focused on making fundraising as easy as possible for HOOLIGANs!
HOOLIGAN’s Education Department offers a variety of theatre workshops to local schools, including costume design, character development, and improvisation.
Education also plans and produces a variety of events specifically geared towards all UCLA students. The department also runs HOOLIGAN’s #events to welcome casts and crews to new productions and offers performance opportunities through our open mic-night cabarets, called Music and CHILLIGAN.
In addition to these programs, the Education Department plans and facilitates an educational matinee of one of HOOLIGAN’s Winter Rep shows and an educational Showcase during Spring Quarter.
The Finance Department is a behind-the-scenes, yet integral part of HOOLIGAN! We are in charge of tracking every payment that goes in-and-out of the company by controlling the company’s Venmo, SquareUp, and PayPal accounts.
We work with numbers, handle large amounts of money, and help other departments cross check payments. There are a couple different positions in our department: master of the doc, internal assets associate, income coordinator, membership manager, and director of finance.
Our Human Resources department works closely with Executive staff with hiring, interpersonal issues, updating/drafting show and membership contracts & planning staff retreat, take notes during all staff meetings, send out staff updates and meeting summaries, communicate with heads of departments to help coordinate company events, facilitate senior staff, meet with members at the beginning of each show and throughout the year, deal with confidential information, help departments with anything that they need throughout the year, and cultivate a welcoming, safe environment.

The Information Technology department manages the online resources that are the backbone of HOOLIGAN Theatre Company. We are in charge of ensuring that information regarding our company can be accessed easily both within and outside of our organization.We work with web hosting services and automated marketing platforms like Weebly and Mailchimp, and occasionally delve into web analytics and data⏤all very good things for any resume.
The Marketing Department is responsible for promoting all HOOLIGAN shows and events in creative and engaging ways, selling out shows, giving HOOLIGAN a strong presence on-campus and online, and bringing more people into the HOOLIGAN family. Our department is comprised of four sub-departments:

Photo/Video: taking show and cast photos, recording behind the scenes and promotional videos, and editing photo/video content

Production Management is focused on all aspects of putting on a show. We are looking for people who like to volunteer to help with projects wherever help is needed. This staff department is integral to the production of HOOLIGAN shows; we have a great time overseeing the show as it comes together!
HOOLIGAN’s Production Management Staff has three main roles: 1) hire and manage the tech departments of each of our 4 mainstage shows, 2) help the company where help is needed, and 3) assist the Production Manager with specific things.
HOOLIGAN’s Special Events department (SPEVENTS) is responsible for organizing all of the company’s social events.
Tasked with the duty of fostering a sense of community and family within the company, SPEVENTS organizes memorable cast and crew parties and social events for every mainstage HOOLIGAN production, which includes choosing the theme, finding a venue, providing refreshments and snacks, creating a fun playlist, setting up beforehand, and cleaning up afterwards.
SPEVENTS is also responsible for HOOLIGAN’s annual Formal event, as well as the End-of-the-Year Banquet and the Staff Retreat in the spring. Along with these staple events, SPEVENTS also produces HOOLIGAN’s number for UCLA’s Spring Sing talent show.
HOOLIGAN hires to select departments every Fall and Spring quarters. The amount of open positions is subject to the current needs of each department. This past Fall 2020 we hired interns in the following departments. Keep tuned for the next cycle.
