Seeking Theatre Teaching Artists

GreenStage is seeking summer camp educators for 2024.
This is a week-by-week camp teaching/directing gig held outside in parks around King and Snohomish County.

Theatre Teaching Artists must love, understand, and know how to teach Shakespeare to 9-16-year-old campers, or know enough Shakespeare to tell some of his stories or read them to 5-8-year-old campers. Positions take high energy and imagination.

Teaching Artists must know how to manage children, play drama games, and put together a bare-bones show in a week. Scripts and supplies are provided.

Stage combat experience is required for one of the camps to be able to teach it.

Camps open July 8 and close August 9th. The longest camp is 5 hours daily, and some camps are as short as 3 hours. Each camp lasts one week.

For more info:


  • Care for the safety of children in a public park.
  • Be entertaining and able to explain character development and basic acting techniques.
  • Have a comfort level with Shakespeare and experience acting or directing his text.
  • Be a good time manager.
  • Be able to work with an assistant and supervise them.
  • You have to be willing and comfortable to be outside in the summer.


A degree in theatre is preferred. If you are currently in a theater training program, you can be considered to teach for the camps without combat.

In the camps with the combat element, we are looking for someone who is a certified stage combatant who is comfortable teaching what they know or a fight director who teaches children.

Theatre Teaching Artist stipend is $25 an hour for the scheduled time with campers.
