The National Theatre for Student Artists (NTSA) is looking for a technical theatre and design instructor who's interested in joining an enthusiastic, dedicated, and artistically-rigorous creative team this summer. NTSA is a selective and residential pre-professional training program for students (ages 14-21) located in Western New York. We offer programs for student actors, designers, stage managers, producers, musicians, and directors. At the end of each session, students take their production to New York City for an off-Broadway engagement.

Our technical theatre instructor leads a team of student designers and technicians as they create and modify sets, costumes, lighting, sound, props and puppets, hair and make-up, and projections for full-scale summer productions. Instructor must have a strong technical theatre background, be comfortable guiding students in the shop, and be able to maintain high safety standards. Instructor will collaborate with off-site mentors and crafts-based workshop facilitators to make sure that students have the specialty training that they need to be successful.

Staff members must have significant previous experience in theatre either as a theatre teacher (preferably at the high school or university level), as a professional theatre practitioner, or as a graduate-level theatre student. BA/BFA in Theatre (or relevant area) preferred. Some previous experience working with students highly preferred.

Staff members work approximately eight hours a day between 9:00 AM and 9:30 PM. Staff members receive single-occupancy accommodations in college dormitories/apartments and meals, as well as a travel allowance. Pay starts at $1,750 per three-week session ($3,500 for both sessions).
