Folger Shakespeare Library, located on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, is seeking two local positions: Assistant Director and Assistant to the Director to join us for the 2023/24 season. The production dates are:

Production 1: The Winter’s Tale           September 27 – December 3, 2023
Production 3: Where We Belong          January 29 – March 24, 2024
Production 4: Metamorphoses            April 8 – June 23, 2024

The Assistant to the Director position is an opportunity for an individual to have a hands-on learning experience and learn firsthand about the production process. 

NOTE: In your application materials (brief cover letter and resume), please share your interest and availability for one or more of the productions listed above.

Folger Theatre is a professional AEA theater which prohibits discrimination of any kind. We are committed to diversity and creating a safe, equitable, and inclusive workplace full of arts practitioners from all ethnicities, gender identities, ages, and disabilities. We strive for our stages and staff to mirror the wonderfully diverse community in which we live. We promise to intentionally make steps in building a more equitable artistic community and encourage you to check out the work that the Folger Shakespeare Library and Folger Theatre are doing to support this.

 Health & safety: The health and well-being of all staff, contractors, and visitors is our top priority. While the Folger no longer requires masks or vaccinations (except for AEA spaces), we support and encourage individuals to take the safety precautions they are most comfortable with, and we ask that individual choices are respected. As we wrap up construction and move to work more consistently on-site this summer, the Folger will continue to review and update polices, in conversation with our staff.   


Fee is paid per production and is competitive. Candidates will be notified of pay upon scheduling of a phone screening.
