Seasonal Staff Opportunities

Toursmall chicken 0062

The Shakespeare Festival's many educational programs and productions employ over 100 artists, technicians, and support personnel on a full-time, part-time or temporary basis each year. Some staff positions are needed year-round, and some, such as teaching artists for our school-year programs and Shakespeare Camps, or technical staff for Free Shakespeare in the Park, are strictly seasonal. We also offer production and administrative internships to qualified candidates. PLEASE NOTE: We do NOT provide housing to out-of-town contractors.
