Assistant Director Positions
As an educational institution, The Rose is committed to providing mentorship opportunities to artists of all kinds. Our professional mainstage season features resident and guest directors from all over the country. If you are interested in assistant directing, we are happy to receive a letter of interest and resume/CV/portfolio. Placement will be based on the anticipated quality of the match between the director and prospective assistant director. Experiential learning will not be uniform across all assistant directing positions. Some will function more as observerships and others will be more hands on, depending on the production’s needs and the applicant’s level of readiness/schedule availability. Several shows have evening and weekend rehearsals, but most require daytime rehearsals. The majority of our productions rehearse for four weeks total.
As primarily a learning experience, no compensation, housing, transportation, or honorarium will be offered for these positions. Complimentary tickets and networking opportunities will be available. Interested applicants do not need to possess a specific level of experience, but should be enrolled in a degree program or be an early career theater professional. Please send a letter of interest with availability details as well as a resume/CV/portfolio to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applicants will be contacted only if a project looks like a good fit.
