Assistant Director – Misfit Toys Repertory Company
WHO: Misfit Toys Repertory Company
SEEKING: Assistant Director to participate in the development of a new comedy about Shakespeare's actors, The King's Men.
Misfit Toys has been developing the play and is now ready to schedule a staged reading and late Spring production in NYC.
RESPONSIBILITIES: cooperative directorial responsibilities, some dramaturgy, providing honest feedback and holding tight to the director's leash. This is not a job for the meek but is a great opportunity for a student or early career director to gain some experience in directing, dramaturgy, and producing in the not-for-profit theatre world.
BENEFITS: There's no cash at the moment but the director always buys your coffee and is a good mentor; a stipend is possible when we go to production.
REQUIREMENTS: a true collaborator fearless in the face of broad comedy with some knowledge of Elizabethan theatre (very helpful), a reasonably flexible schedule, and an appreciation of cookies (that's kind of our thing).
WHEN: 2/25/2010 – 7/1/2010
HOW TO APPLY: Please submit resumes to Joe Leo, Artistic Director, at casting@MisfitToysRep.org
