Ashland Productions Hiring Teaching Artists

Rate of Pay: 

Ashland Productions is hiring teaching staff for its 2022-2023 season ACT! program. 

Positions are paid $1,200 for two-three rehearsals per week (2-3 hours total) for 8-16 weeks and increased time during tech week and performances. This is a great supplementary opportunity for theatre/music/dance teaching artists as well as applicants with an interest in elementary education.

The ACT! program is a unique partnership between Ashland Productions and Elementary Schools in the East Metro. Ashland trains and assigns one or two teaching artists to go into each partner school to teach a cast of 30-65 elementary students a full children's musical, including lines, songs and choreography. The cast then comes to the Ashland stage for tech week, in which they familiarize themselves with costumes, sets, lights and microphones, before performing 2-3 times for the public.

ACT! Directors:

· Love working with and have experience with elementary age students;

· Love theater and have experience in musicals as artists (directors, performers, vocal directors and/or choreographers);

· Can teach pre-established choreography and blocking while creating a welcoming and fun environment.

· Work twice a week in a school setting for 20-24 sessions of about 1-hour each over the course of 8-16 weeks;

· Have availability a minimum of two days a week either before or after school. School schedules vary.

To apply, send a resume and references to Jack Lambert, Youth Programming Director ([email protected]). Applicants will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Submission deadline is January 2nd but some positions will be filled beginning October 31st. Contact Jack with any questions.

Ashland Productions is a non-profit theatre organization focusing on youth empowerment through theatre -- programming runs year round and features performers of all ages.
