Summer Theater Education Apprenticeship
Portland Stage is seeking Summer Education Apprentices for summer 2023.
All Portland Stage employees, apprentices and guest artists agree to create a work environment that respects diverse ideas, races, genders, sexualities, abilities, culture, and religions, contribute to working in an anti-racist theater, and value Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access (IDEA).
Summer Education Apprentices assist the artistic and education staff with planning and running Portland Stage’s theater camps for students ages 4-18. In general, there are three Education Apprentices each summer. Responsibilities include assisting and co-teaching with professional teaching artists, organizing and producing camp materials, leading warm-ups, and planning and executing camp ‘Apprentice Hours’ of lead teaching (1-2 instructional hours daily). The summer may also include opportunities to assist the Summer Library PLAY Tour. This Apprenticeship generally runs from June through mid-August; Education Apprentices from the preceding season are often asked to apply to stay for the summer.
The hours are full time (40 hours a week) and the schedule will likely fluctuate from week to week.
Furnished housing, utilities (electricity, heat, internet), and a weekly stipend will be provided.
