WORK WITH US

 We Want To Work With You

The West Side Show Room provides a creative home for people who may not have found fulfilling opportunities at other theaters in our area. We love meeting artists and forging new relationships.

We have openings for experienced actors, directors, stage managers, and designers in our upcoming season. There are also internship opportunities available. 
 


ACTORS

The West Side Show Room is always interested in meeting actors. We are a community theater with a serious mindset: we work hard, take risks, and care about the audience. We believe that anyone, regardless of training or experience, can deliver an excellent performance if they commit to the process.

We are very excited to work with all kinds of actors especially actors who haven't had opportunities at other theaters. One of The West Side Show Room's most important values is Activist Casting.  Any actor regardless of age, skin tone, gender, body type, or physical ability should be able to play any role, in any play, unless otherwise specified by the playwright.

If you are talented, if you have something unique to offer, and if you have the drive to commit yourself to crafting a great performance, we would love to meet you. Please send a cover letter, headshot, and resume to thewestsideshowroom@gmail.com.

DIRECTORS

The West Side Show Room is interested in working with directors who are comfortable making bold choices, taking risks, and bringing a strong interpretive vision to the table.

The West Side Show Room values the concept of confrontational theater. We presents plays that are wildly entertaining, but never allow the audience to withdraw into complacency. Whether the work is old/new, dramatic/comedic, realistic/absurd, The West Side Show Room's performances are up-close, immersive, risky, confrontational, and challenge the audience to expand their view of the world.

if you are interested in directing a future West Side Show Room production, send a cover letter and resume to thewestsideshowroom@gmail.com.

STAGE MANAGERS

The West Side Show Room is currently seeking stage managers for its upcoming season.

We are currently a community theater with a professional mindset: we work hard, take risks, and hold each other to a high standard. Our stage managers are the backbone of this process and are vital to ensure the smooth running of rehearsals and performances.

If you have experience stage managing, please send a cover letter and resume to thewestsideshowroom@gmail.com.

DESIGNERS

The West Side Show Room is currently looking for Set, Lighting, Costume, and Prop designers for its upcoming season.

In our work, we value creative constraint. Our first sets were made out of cardboard as both a way to save money, and as an aesthetic choice. We hold cardboard up as an emblem symbolic of creative constraint: the concept that artists make the strongest choices when their options are limited.

If you have a unique vision, think outside the box, and are interested in working with new materials and non-traditional techniques, we would love to meet you. Send a cover letter, resume, and portfolio links to thewestsideshowroom@gmail.com.
