Yes, the highest paying of the IA touring contracts, used for first run Broadway tours. The most pay per week, full per diem, extras for work calls and rehearsals, or Monday loadins, etc... It's good money if you can get it. I know guys on pink contracts that make well over $100 grand a year on the road.

And if you do it right - you can live only off of per diem (and sometimes less) and bank your salary. 

Full Pink is the best.  Light or modified pink is the next step down and can be very highly varied in pay and conditions.

The number one rule of touring (after no number 2 on the bus), is live on the per diem, not the salary.

Right now, everything is an option.


There's exactly no audio work in Oklahoma, so...
I'm surprised you haven't gotten any leads around Tulsa, I know there's tons of entities in T-town that are involved in event work, design, installation, etc.  Have you looked into opportunities with any of the Sovereign Nations?  Surely, between the Cherokee and Muscogee-Creek Nations there's an AV staff of some sort.

Opinions expressed by me on this forum are my own and not necessarily those of the company for which I work.

The local AV companies pay about what I'm making now, but they are mostly 1099 operations. Have one or two that I will hit up if need be.


I'm a card carrying member of the Muskogee (Creek Nation), and believe me when I say that I'm leaving my current job because of the bureaucratic nightmare that it has become, and the tribes are even worse. I want no part of that political one-ups-manship game.

Got it.  Good luck with the search, if I hear of anything substantial I'll pass it along...
