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.
