Teach Theater in the Great Outdoors!
We're currently seeking theater staff to work at stunning camps across the US and Canada this coming summer.
Currently available positions range from entry-level to highly experienced at both day and sleepaway camps. Camp contracts are typically 8 weeks in length (June –August). Day camp positions require local applicants with access to a vehicle or proximity to reliable public transportation to the location. Sleepaway camps include room/board for the duration of the contract, which allows us to place candidates from locations nationwide.
Ideal candidates have experience in theater education and/or children’s theater and are enthusiastic, extremely adaptable, and familiar with the camp setting. In addition to theater, camps are also seeking specialty positions, such as music, dance, and art specialists.
With the guidance and resources provided by mainstages, you will feel supported and empowered along the way. This is the perfect summer job for the right applicant. If you are a college student studying theater or a recent college grad, we’d love to hear from you!
Tri-State NY and DC metro area local applicants with a car are encouraged to apply. Please do not delay, positions fill quickly!
Performers and Improv Hosts for Kids!
We are looking for dynamic character actors with a contagious personality and an innate ability to connect with children. An ideal candidate is a self-starter who can host a game show, play three characters in an interactive performance, and lead an improv showcase performed by children (aka Whose Line is it Anyway?) all in the same day.
A successful mainstages performer thrives on the unpredictable and can bring the noise, energy, and drive to make every show special for the audience. Encouraged, but not strictly required, is a working knowledge of A/V equipment.
Many of the year-round performances take place on Sundays, so weekend availability is a must. A clean driver’s license and comfort driving in NYC is required. Applicants with their own car are encouraged to apply. Performances vary week to week with dates offered in advance of employment. We have a formula and a recipe to ensure you feel comfortable and supported.
This is the perfect job for someone with camp interest or experience and/or an innate ability to connect with kids. We offer competitive compensation and opportunity for growth into administrative roles and helping to create content for shows. If you think that this is YOU, apply now!
