Artistic Team & Teaching Artist Positions:

If you are interested in an artistic position (director, music director, choreographer, designer) for a future Mainstage or Tanglewood Youth Production Class show, please submit your information using the Artistic Team & Teaching Artist Portal. We look to hire people within the WNC region, and do not provide stipends for travel or lodging. Submissions will be processed on a rolling basis.

Productions in our 35below season are proposed by and produced by individuals from the WNC region. We are currently not accepting applications for 35below, as we are unsure when we will be able to reopen that space due to COVID-19. Please check the 35below page on our website for more information.
