Costume Positions

Shakespeare & Company is committed to evolving its approach to diversity and inclusion in order to engender an active process and positive change toward race equity in its employment and artistry. Our goal is to engage ourselves in endeavors which enrich and promote a more just society. The Company seeks candidates who will embrace Shakespeare & Company’s vigorous commitment to inclusion, diversity, equity, and access alongside anti-racism initiatives. 

Costume Designers sought for our Fall Festival of Shakespeare, a part of our Education Program, and which is now in its 33rd year.  This exciting project produces 10 Shakespeare plays in 10 local high schools over 8-10 weeks, starting in September and culminating in a festival weekend just before Thanksgiving, when close to 400 students, actors, and technicians perform all ten shows over 4 days for each other and the public.  This is an excellent opportunity for younger designers to gain design experience working in a theatre-in-education project and operating as part of a large professional shop.  

Costumers typically design shows in two schools starting the last week of September, or one school on a shorter contract. Costumes are drawn from our 42 years of stock and the inspiration of the designer.  Presently designers are needed for 4 schools. Housing is available, local transportation negotiable, though preferred candidates will have their own transportation. Applicants should have at least a BA or BFA, costume construction and design experience, excellent organization skills, and enjoy working with High School students. Full Covid 19 Vaccination Status and a driver’s license are required. Experience in an educational situation helpful.  E.O.E.
