Assistant Technical Director
Marlborough School, an independent, college preparatory school in Los Angeles for 530 young women in grades 7-12, seeks a dynamic Assistant Technical Director to start immediately or for the 2017-2018 school year.
Marlborough’s Mission defines the School as “an independent, urban day school serving a diverse group of young women.” We believe a diverse faculty is essential to the Mission of the School, for the following reasons:
• We instill confidence and cultivate leadership potential within each student and serve as role models in inspiring them to pursue their personal best.
• We arm each graduate with the skills and motivation to create meaningful connections with people throughout the nation and across the world.
• We serve as role models for our students with teaching responsibilities that extend beyond the classroom and the curriculum.
It is our responsibility to employ a diverse group of educators who exemplify excellence in teaching and leadership, and teach by example as well as by pedagogy.
The Performing Arts Department at Marlborough is made up of a faculty of artist-practitioners with an abiding sense of mission as educators. As a department we are committed to artistic integrity inside of a learning environment. Students are exposed to a professionalism that they will meet when they enter the wider world and to a diversity of artists and artistic styles.
Our training and programming is designed to nurture creative minds, strong and expressive bodies, and articulate voices; to stoke the creative impulse, and to energize and contain that impulse through the various containers required by performance. Our programs are designed to enable students to form an experiential appreciation for the creative process, to develop personal commitment and collaborative competence, to develop an appropriate level of technique and skill in their chosen disciplines, to communicate effectively about their genre, and to recognize artistic quality, so that they are empowered not only as artists, but as future patrons of the arts. Our productions are ambitious and intentional, with high artistic and production values, and are often chosen or created to address issues that are relevant to our community.
The ideal candidate should possess, at minimum, a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Theatre, Technical Theatre, an area of Theatrical Design, or a related field of study and comparable professional experience, have at least two years teaching experience in the middle (grades 7-9) and upper (grades 10-12) school, and at least one year’s worth of experience running a scene shop. Additional skills and detailed job description available upon request.
This position reports to the Producing Director and the Technical Director of Marlborough School’s Performing Arts Department.
