GreenStage is looking for House Managers to join our 2024 Shakespeare in the Park team.

Our summer season consists of three tours, each of which needs a house manager.

House Managers

GreenStage is seeking House Managers for our three summer touring productions of Shakespeare in the Park.

Our 2024 season runs from July 12 through August 18.

  • Twelfth Night – directed by Erin Day
  • Henry VI, Parts 2 & 3 – directed by Zanne Gerrard
  • BACKYARD BARD – All’s Well that Ends Well and Julius Caesar– directed by Sarah Stillion
    Backyard Bard is two 1-hour plays both performed by the same cast of four actors.

We perform in public parks in Seattle, Fall City, Lynnwood, and Burien with performances on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings, with matinees on weekends. The two full-length shows each also have one Thursday evening performance (Lynnwood). Each production has approximately 15 performances.

GreenStage is an all-volunteer organization. However, we provide a stipend to all actors and members of the production team as a thank-you and to help cover travel expenses.


Each of our three productions tours to several different locations in and around Seattle. House Managers are responsible for setting up signboards, handing out programs, handling promotional items, collecting donations, and other tasks. The House Manager is often the only GreenStage representative available to the audience until after the show. Keeping a cheerful attitude, quickly addressing questions and/or issues, and setting expectations for the audience will ensure that everyone watching (and performing) has a positive experience.


  • Smart phone to process credit card transactions.
  • Reliable transportation to get to and from performances.
  • Be outgoing, personable, and a good communicator.
  • Comfortable addressing the audience. A loud voice is a plus.
  • Ability to reconcile money accurately.


  • Arrive at the performance location at least 1 hour before the curtain.
  • Set up signboards to direct audiences to the performance space.
  • Manage distribution of concession items such as T-shirts, hats, coffee mugs, etc.
  • Hand out programs as the audience arrives.
  • Make pre-show curtain speech to the audience.
  • Serve as company liaison should issues arise with audience members or other park users.
  • Reconcile donation income and prepare nightly reports.

A $500 stipend is paid at the end of run.
