Stipend - modest flat fee

Announcing openings for Wardrobe/Costume Design, First Hand, stitcher, and Make-up artists/hair supervisors at Shakespeare Opera Theatre, a non-profit 501c3 performing arts company. In partnership with Colgan High School for the Arts in Prince William County, SOT engages audiences all over Northern Virginia in the works of Shakespeare along with musical adaptations of great composers.
Ideal candidates are recently graduated and/or in the early stages of their careers. We are in our third season and only able to offer modest stipends at this time, but we do have high production values. We also have positions for interns or apprentices for those who would like to assist and need experience in their chosen area.
For those who wish to be the wardrobe/Costume Manager/stitcher: We cannot offer housing at this time, and we offer compensation commensurate with experience, but understand that it is not a living wage yet. We do all we can to make sure this is a good experience for the right candidate, but we regret we cannot pay for a highly experienced costumer at this time. Someone who has just finished a degree or is in the beginning stages of their career is ideal for our theatre at this time. As we grow, the position and compensation will be increased. We rent costumes from New York, and our wardrobe person will be expected to help load in, alter and fit costumes, take measurements, dress and assist with quick changes during tech week and performances August 24th-Sept 3rd, and Sept 9 and 10. Some simple building may be required, and all materials will be covered by the company. Other times for measuring and fitting are negotiable according to the candidate's schedule, and a trip to NY to pull costumes with other staff is all expenses paid.
