Job Opportunities

Costume Design Opportunity: Openings for three Theater in Education Costume Designers to work in the 27th Fall Festival of Shakespeare at Shakespeare & Company, Lenox MA. This is a nationally acclaimed, dynamic 8 week program that fully produces 90 minute versions of Shakespeare’s plays in 10 local high schools. Dates are September 28 through November 23, 2015. There are 30 – 35 students in each production. They first perform in their own school and then all casts come together the weekend before Thanksgiving in a non-competitive festival atmosphere to perform their shows for each other and the public. This is an exciting and highly creative endeavor and needs costumers who enjoy working independently. Costumers are assigned 2 local schools and work closely with a team of directors and the students to costume each show, pulling from our large 37 years of stock. This program offers a fee and housing, local transportation negotiable, though preferred candidates will have own transportation. Experience in educational theater helpful. E.O.E. Send cover letter, resume, 3 references with e-mail contact to: Costume Department, Shakespeare & Co., 70 Kemble St., Lenox, MA 01240, or costumes@shakespeare.org.
