Ashland Contemporary Theatre seeks new artistic director
Ashland Contemporary Theatre is seeking to fill the leadership role of producing artistic director, a position that has been vacant since April 2014.
ACT was founded in 1991 as Ashland Community Theatre and was rebranded as Ashland Contemporary Theatre in 2010.
The producing artistic director leads the collaborative process of selecting plays and shaping budgets with the ACT board's reading committee; recruits and manages directors, actors and technical personnel; oversees quality control in all artistic matters; and is responsible for the procurement of production materials either directly or through a production manager.
The producing artistic director also serves as the bridge between ACT and the community, acting as lead spokesperson, advising about fundraising and coordinating with board personnel on venue arrangements.
In a news release, ACT said candidates should be both comfortable working within committees and a visionary self-starter; be a talented director; be well-versed in all aspects of theater; and be experienced in stewarding productions from start to finish. The position pays a monthly stipend and a budget percentage.
Those interested can contact board President Ruth Wire for more information at 541-482-7742, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
