DAVIDSON COMMUNITY PLAYERS SEEKS DIRECTORS, MUSIC DIRECTORS, AND TEACHING ARTISTS

Davidson Community Players, an award winning community theatre in the Lake Norman region, is seeking experienced directors, music directors and teaching artists to be considered for upcoming projects.  Our programming is rapidly expanding and we are always on the lookout for new and innovative talent!

 Our production season includes 6 main stage, 5 youth shows and one outdoor Shakespeare performance per year.  We perform at our home theatre, the 110 seat Armour Street Theatre, as well as the 500 seat Duke Family Performance Hall and other local venues.

The Connie Company, our award winning youth program, is the largest in the Lake Norman region and continues to expand offerings of after school theatre classes, summer camps and productions.

All positions are compensated at a varying rate dependent on the project.  We encourage all who are interested to send in a cover letter and resume to Sylvia Schnople, Artistic Director at Sylvia@davidsoncommunityplayers.org.   

Davidson Community Players is proud to be an Equal Employment Opportunity employer.  Our goal is to be a diverse workplace where we provide an environment of mutual respect with opportunities for applicants from diverse cultures, perspectives and experiences.






Teaching Artists
The Connie Company, the youth division of Davidson Community Players, is seeking Teaching Artists for the Youth Classes and Summer Camps. The successful candidates will have experience teaching drama, particularly to children, and the ability to adapt lesson plans to a variety of course lengths and situations. Flexibility, the ability to work independently, and responsibility are key to this position. Proficiency in using positive discipline methods and reinforcement is required.  A degree (or currently working towards one) in the arts and/or directing experience is a plus, but not required. Instructors are compensated at competitive rates commensurate with experience.
 
DCP is seeking Teaching Artists to work with our Youth Ensembles. These Youth Ensembles are for students age 8-18, at all levels of experience.  Ensemble sessions run once in the Spring and again in the Fall. Each of these Ensembles rehearses twice a week for ten weeks, with breaks for major holidays. The Ensembles offer students both instruction and production experience.  Ensembles will be grouped by level of experience, educational needs and schedule, and will be assigned a script. Instructors will then use theatre-related activities to teach the skills essential to effectively creating a fully-staged production. Instructors will be responsible for working with DCP staff to create a concept for set and costumes, as well as all staging of their assigned script.

Interested candidates for either position should send a letter of interest, a resume highlighting teaching experience and contact information for three references to: Katie Mullis, Education Coordinator, Davidson Community Players. PO Box 76, Davidson, NC, 28036. Email submissions welcome at Katie@davidsoncommunityplayers.org
