mainstages, an educational theater company for children, is seeking energetic performers with strong improvisational skills to perform in-person at day and sleepaway camps in the tri-state area, starting June 25!

We are looking for dynamic character actors with a contagious personality and an innate ability to connect with children. An ideal candidate is a self-starter who can host a game show, play three characters in an interactive performance, and lead an improv showcase performed by children (ala Whose Line is it Anyway?) all in the same day. A successful mainstages performer thrives on the unpredictable and can bring the noise, energy, and drive to make every show special for the audience. Encouraged, but not strictly required, is a working knowledge of A/V equipment.

Performances load out from our office in Astoria, NY and vehicles are provided when needed. Ability to self-report to Astoria, a clean driver’s license, and comfort driving in NYC is required. Vaccinated applicants are encouraged to apply. Performances vary week to week with dates offered in advance of employment. Some overnight stays (lodging provided) may be requested. 

This is the perfect job for someone with camp experience and/or an innate ability to connect with kids. We offer competitive compensation and opportunity for growth. If you think that this is YOU, apply now!
