Volunteer Position: Artistic Director
Half Moon Bay Shakespeare is a local, nonprofit, community theater company with the goal of producing classic theater on the San Mateo County coast. We typically produce and perform one full‐length Shakespeare play per year, from early August through early September. We are seeking an artistic director with a genuine love of “the Bard” and experience in theatrical production. We value inclusivity and want to encourage unique and fresh points of view.
Although this is a volunteer position, the board will provide reimbursement for approved expenses.
The Artistic Director reports to the Half Moon Bay Shakespeare Company board of directors and serves at the pleasure of the board. The Artistic Director implements the artistic vision for the Company and oversees all aspects of artistic production, including, but not limited to: collaborating with the board for play selection; recruiting directors, performers, designers, and production staff; setting production schedules; and managing budgets. The Artistic Director will pitch a production and corresponding budget to the Half Moon Bay Shakespeare board and will work closely with the board to manage expenses. The Artistic Director will work with the board to refine job duties and may sometimes direct productions, if agreed on by the board.
Desired skills include:
- Knowledge and experience working with Shakespeare plays
- Experience producing and directing theatrical productions
- Experience with budgets and logistics
- Ability to manage projects and lead people
- Excellent communication and people skills
- Ability to work under pressure
