Job Description

Starting in September 2017, Saint Ann’s school is looking to hire a playwright to join our extraordinary theater department and teach his/her/their craft to talented, curious middle and high school students.
You would bring your experience (teaching theater to children of any age, writing plays, working in collaborative theater, directing) to our flourishing playwriting program. Saint Ann’s students are encouraged to speak their minds and their hearts. They are funny and courageous. We seek teachers who share those qualities: dullards and naysayers need not apply. Because Saint Ann’s does not give grades, teachers write lengthy anecdotal reports twice a year—a satisfying way to communicate with children and parents but not for the faint of heart. Our new playwriting teacher will be capable of mounting playwriting festivals and directing main-stage theater productions and will be able to encourage authentic, brilliant writing and to coach (with humor, humility and love) revisions and rewrites. Sound judgment along with a commitment to a life in art (contradictory as these qualities may seem) are a must. Applicants should be well organized even as they have a high tolerance for chaos. This is an impossible job that is perfect for someone.

Send resume and cover letter that speaks directly to the school’s mission (consider perusing our website www.saintannsny.org ) to playwritingsearch@saintannsny.org
Please note: we are open to hiring either full-time and part-time for this position. Applicants of color are encouraged to apply.
