Job Posting:

Studio Instructor

The Studio at Shakespeare by the Sea seeks an acting, improv, and Shakespeare instructor on Sundays during the 2021-2022 school year.


The Studio is looking to add a day of classes that will be run by two staff who share the teaching and administrative duties throughout the day. We are looking to fill one of these positions with a new addition to our Faculty. Hired instructor will work collaboratively with the other instructor to ensure that drop off and pick up before and after class are swift and conducted safely. The two instructors together will be responsible for ensuring that our existing COVID-19 Safety Plan is followed.


Sundays (total of 28 weeks throughout September 2021-May 2022)

9:45-11:15AM - Admin Time

11:15-12:45PM - Instructor Time (Improv & Drama class for ages 10-15)

12:45-2:15PM - Instructor Time (Shakespeare Class for ages 13-18)

2:15-2:45PM - Admin Time


The ideal candidate is an enthusiastic, energetic individual who is comfortable creating a fun, inviting learning environment, with a background in theatre and some amount of comfort with improvisation. They will be someone who is great at finding fun and engaging ways to introduce concepts and rehearse short pieces for presentation at our end-of-year recital.


The Shakespeare class on the schedule is intended to be a “feeder” class for other programs being offered at The Studio, so the specific curriculum will be designed by the Studio Director. As such, an extensive Shakespeare background is not a necessity, though enthusiasm for the material will be an asset. Instructor will be paid for a training session in September of 2021. The staff will be paid $30.00 per hour for teaching and $15.00 per hour for admin time. This is independently contracted work.


The Studio is a very small team (you would be #4!) that is extremely dedicated to supporting the growth of all the programs across the board. We’re driven by the goal to create training programs that challenge our students to become the best actors they can be. We welcome this opportunity to add another creative voice to our team and offer our students the chance to be exposed to your area of expertise, and your artistic passion.


Shakespeare by the Sea seeks to create theatre that is inviting, inclusive, and accessible to all. In seeking to have a Studio Faculty that reflects the diverse community we serve, we strongly encourage submissions from artists of diverse cultural backgrounds, and will be prioritizing submissions from applicants who self-identify as members of underrepresented communities. 


Interested candidates should email a brief cover letter and employment resume to Studio Director Jade Douris-O’Hara at Please feel free to contact Jade if you have any questions about the position.


Suitable candidates will be invited to a masked and socially distant interview at the Park Place Theatre.
