Job Details

DESCRIPTION

The Stevens Dramatic Society (SDS) is an entirely student run theater organization at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, New Jersey, that has been around since 1910. This upcoming semester (Spring 2021), SDS is pursuing a virtual rendition of Godspell. Our entirely virtual semester will consist of virtual rehearsals as well as a pre-recorded virtual performance in mid April. SDS does not have any theater majors, and this semester, more than ever, we are looking for someone to expand our actors’ on-camera acting skills and guide them towards a great final product.


We are looking for a passionate Director with a clear and singular vision to help us lead our production. We are hoping for this Director to have additional experience with vocal coaching and technique for on-camera acting. Responsibilities will include, but are not limited to: character work and actor coaching, vocal coaching, facilitating virtual auditions, working closely with student leaders toward a common goal, one-on-one meetings with actors throughout the production, working with the other professionals on this production to set and maintain a common image/tempo for the production.


A rough look at our schedule for this production is:

Rehearsals: formatted around college students’ schedules (most likely looking at afternoon and/or early evening rehearsals), Full cast meetings would be very limited (a few in the beginning to establish a vision and goals, and a few at the end)

Meeting with production leaders in mid to late January, auditions in late January or early February, final production in mid to late April.



As we understand this is not a typical production, please contact us (gposka@stevens.edu) with any questions you may have prior to submitting your application. When submitting your application, please be sure to include a cover letter expressing your interest in our production, a resume, and references (optional). Please include your name and job title (Director) in the subject of your email. The deadline to submit your application is December 12th at 11:59pm.
