Call for Co-Director of Summer Youth Theatre Camp 2017

Locally Grown Theatre is seeking an engaging, collaborative director with youth theatre experience. In our fifth summer of producing a summer theatre camp in the South Washington County area, we have expanded our program and number of students we serve. In turn, we are looking for that upbeat, positive director to become a part of our annual camp program.

July 10-15, 2017--Performances on July 14 (6:30 pm)and 15 (1 pm). Auditions on Monday, June 5th 2017. Hours of camp 8:30 am-4:30 pm

Because of the size of the camp (80-90 students), we produce 2 45-minute productions, usually versions of familiar fairy tales or children's stories.  This year, we are producing "Pinocchio" and "Beauty and the Beast" (both non-Disney versions). We have one set of co-directors for one of the shows, and we are looking for an additional experienced director for the second production. Locally Grown Theatre's Artistic Director serves as the producer for the camp, and will be a part of planning and administrating the camp--enabling the directors to focus on the fun and creative process of putting together the shows.


Experience and confidence in working in theatre with students ages 5-15, and respect for seasoned high school counselors

Positive, upbeat, collaborative attitude 

Adaptability and flexibility in working with groups of large numbers

Innovative and self-motivated


Stipend of $200--paid at the end of the production week on July 15, 2017.
