Educational Set & Lighting Design Opportunity:
We have openings for two Theatre in Education Set & Lighting Designers to work in the 30th Fall Festival of Shakespeare at Shakespeare & Company, Lenox MA.
This is a nationally acclaimed, dynamic program that fully produces 90 minute versions of Shakespeare’s plays in 10 local high schools, involving over 400 students, 20 directors and 7-8 costumers and 7-9 production design staff.
Dates are October 2 through November 19, 2018. There are approximately 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 designers who enjoy working independently and creatively. Designers are assigned 2 local schools and work closely with a team of directors and the students on the set, lighting, and often sound for each show, pulling from our large 40 years of stock.
This program offers a weekly salary and housing, preferred candidates will have a Driver’s License and their own transportation. Experience in educational theater design helpful. E.O.E. Send cover letter, resume, 3 references with e-mail contact to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
