Reporting to the Board of Trustees, the Executive Director (ED) will have the vision to move RBT to the next exciting chapter of its growth. In partnership with Founder and Artistic Director (AD) Jesse Berger, the ED will be engaged in all aspects of company leadership. In concert with the AD, board, and staff, they will set a clear direction for the organization and ensure resources, systems, and structures are in place to meet RBT’s goals for its twentieth anniversary season and beyond. The ED will value diversity and create an environment that is sustainably inclusive and equitable. They will be a positive role model who works creatively, joyfully and collaboratively across the organization and throughout the community to build strong external relationships. Core areas of responsibility are threefold:
Strategic Visioning and Organizational Oversight
Fundraising and Revenue Enhancement
Financial Management and Board Stewardship

Internships and Apprenticeships
As part of our commitment to developing the next generation of classical theater professionals, we engage students and early-career theater artists in our Apprentice/Internship program. This hands-on program allows interns and volunteers to collaborate with Red Bull Theater artists and administrators. Red Bull Theater volunteer apprentices and interns are paired with a staff member who mentors their assignment and provides guidance and supervision. There are no acting internships or apprenticeships possible at this time. Candidates must be self-motivated, eager to learn, willing to assist, and able to work independently. Students are eligible for college credit, based upon the guidelines of their college or university, with flexibility to accommodate each institution’s specific requirements. To apply, please send a letter specifically outlining your interest, three references, and current resume to firstname.lastname@example.org. PDF's only, please.
