Part-Time Seasonal Part-Time Museum Interpreter/Actor
NOTE: This job listing has expired and may no longer be relevant!
The Accokeek Foundation seeks a Museum Interpreter whose best asset is an outgoing personality and the ability to engage audiences and learners. We love actors, teachers, and class clowns who get a charge out of being able to get audience reactions and to trigger genuine “ah-hah” moments. You enjoy pretending to be other people and wearing funny costumes in the name of education. You’ve also got a brain and an insatiable curiosity about the world, especially nature. Your social conscience will make you a perfect fit here, because we’ve got a serious side and we deal with serious issues. We aim to provoke thoughts and even transform lives by teaching people about the environment through a historical lens. You think that’s exciting and want to be a part of it.
Job requirements include:
Lively, outgoing personality and/or experience in theatre/drama
Ability to master interactive tours and activities; this includes memorizing and performing scripts, improvising with visitors
Interpersonal skills and diplomacy necessary to facilitate discussion around sensitive topics
Willing and able to work outside in various weather conditions
Willing to wear various costumes depending on program
Works well in a sometimes unpredictable environment where last minute changes may be necessary
Able to lift 50 pounds
Historic gardening/farm chores performed when not interacting with visitors (we train). This requires moderate physical activity and willingness to get dirty.
Comfortable around large and small animals
Excellent communication skills and a willingness to learn
Experience working with children
Applicant will be required to complete a background check prior to employment.
