Ridgewood Gilbert and Sullivan Opera Company
Ridgewood, NJ 07451
The Ridgewood Gilbert and Sullivan Opera Company is seeking engaging and passionate applicants to serve in the positions of stage director and music director for our Fall 2019 production of The Gondoliers.
About us: The Ridgewood Gilbert and Sullivan Opera Company is a nonprofit performing ensemble based in Ridgewood, New Jersey that has presented full productions of the works of Gilbert and Sullivan every fall and spring since its founding in 1937 by Kay and Jack Edson. We give full performances in Ridgewood, plus we perform elsewhere in Northern and Central Jersey (Bergen, Passaic, Essex, Ocean counties), Rockland County, New York City, and Connecticut. In addition, we take pride in making opera more accessible to the community by performing several free shows and staged concerts a year at facilities that cater to senior residents, patients, and veterans.
Schedule: Auditions will take place late July/early August, and rehearsals will begin immediately after Labor Day. Our full performances will take place in November 2019, with several library concerts occurring in October and November 2019.
Our standard rehearsals take place on Mondays and Thursdays from 7:30-10pm in Glen Rock and Ridgewood, NJ (both down the street from train stations and bus stops for transportation to NYC). However, added rehearsals (including tech) will be decided by the director and music director once hired.
How to submit: If you wish to be considered, please send a resume and, if possible, a YouTube link to a sample of your work to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please indicate which position you are applying for in the subject line. After submitted materials have been reviewed, selected applicants will be contacted by June 20th to schedule a phone or Skype interview.
Please send any questions to email@example.com. We look forward to learning more about you!
