International Alliance of Theatrical Stagehand Employees


The International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, Moving Picture Technicians, Artists and Allied Crafts of the United States, Its Territories and Canada (IATSE) was founded in 1893 when representatives of stagehands working in eleven cities met in New York and pledged to support each others’ efforts to establish fair wages and working conditions for their members.

Today, we work in all forms of live theater, motion picture and television production, trade shows and exhibitions, television broadcasting, and concerts as well as the equipment and construction shops that support all these areas of the entertainment industry.

Reach out for a one on one visit if you’re interested in working with IATSE or getting connected to a new chapter.

Keep an eye on the the MKSM event calendar for any upcoming recruitment and information meetups, events, and other opportunities to learn, work, and get involved.
