2015-16 Season Staffing Opportunities

The Gallery Players, Brooklyn’s premier, award-winning Off-Off Broadway theater, is seeking Designers and Staff for their 49th Season which includes: GODSPELL (Sept 12-Oct 4), The Piano Lesson (Oct 24-Nov 8), It Runs in the Family (Dec 5-Dec 20), Seussical  (Jan 30-Feb 21), One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (Mar 12-Mar 27), In the Heights (Apr 23-May 15) and the 19th Annual Black Box New Play Festival (June 2-June 26). We are seeking talented and resourceful Designers for Set, Costumes, Lighting, Props and Sound. We are also accepting resumes from capable Producers, Assoc. Producers, Stage Managers and Asst. Stage Managers for all shows. Interested Designers must be capable of executing their design with help from a volunteer staff and Gallery’s resources. There is a small stipend for all positions. Send materials ASAP to designstaff@galleryplayers.com.

We are seeking enthusiastic, hard-working, talented, self-starting people who are willing and able to work in an Off-Off Broadway setting. The Gallery Players operates under the Equity NYC Showcase code.

Producers will be expected to supervise a production from the choosing of a director through opening night, making sure that each show meets our high standards and comes in within budget.

Designers: Though Gallery does have Volunteers to help with everything from building and hanging to ushering and concessions, it is ultimately the designer’s job to make sure the design is executed.

Stage Managers and Assistant Stage Managers can be either Equity or Non-Equity.

Please indicate which shows particularly interest you.

The Peanut Gallery

 PEANUT LOGO

 

Taught by professional theatre artists, the PEANUT GALLERY is devoted to musical theatre, personal expression, and self confidence. Children will learn the basics of singing and dancing, as well as what it means to participate and contribute to a group. Through story-telling, theatre games, art projects and performance, and with the guidance of the talented instructors, kids will not only have fun but will increase their own expressiveness and positive self image. During one spectacular week of Peanut Gallery, they will create and perform their own original show with songs from Broadway musicals on the stage of Gallery Players 99 seat theater!
