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
