Groton School is seeking a fellow to teach theater classes and assist in production for the school’s Theater Department projects. The fellow’s responsibilities will include teaching or co-teaching two classes under the supervision of an experienced member of the department; the fellowship will also offer the opportunity to observe classes in other disciplines.
In the Afternoon Program, responsibilities will include assisting with direction of the mainstage and studio performances, as well as bringing skills and/or expertise to one or more of the following areas: costume design, scenic design, lighting design, dance/choreography, sound design, and/or musical direction. In all arenas the fellow will be expected to play a role in creating an environment conducive to exploration, where students are encouraged to experiment and learn from failures as well as successes. The fellow will work closely with the Director of Theater as well as the technical direction team. Hands-on experience with multiple aspects of theater is preferred, but more important are the ability and willingness to learn.
Groton School requires faculty members to contribute to the extracurricular life of the school and share some dormitory and residential school responsibilities. Qualifications, therefore, include a demonstrated interest in coordinating extracurricular activities and a willingness to fulfill evening and weekend duties.
Teaching fellow appointments are one-year, salaried positions.
Teachers are provided with living quarters, meals in the school Dining Hall, utilities (except for telephone), and medical insurance.
