Job description

Footliters Traveling Playhouse is a new touring program of the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts. Together with master teaching artists, we’re creating theatre experiences for students across Iowa. Our week-long camps are open to students of all backgrounds, experience levels, and training.

We’re seeking dynamic performers with a passion for teaching artistry. Six artists will play multiple roles in The Secret of the Sphinx and The Call of the Matterhorn, two original touring musicals produced by Footliters Traveling Playhouse. For each production a team of three Teaching Artists will lead week-long theatre camps for groups of approximately 40-60 children ages 7-14. Teaching Artists should be comfortable leading rehearsals for 15-30 students at a time. Artists of all gender identities, ethnicities, racial backgrounds, and sexual identities are highly encouraged to audition.

Teaching Artist Responsibilities include:
• completing up to ten days of training and rehearsal
• performing a role each week in The Secret of the Sphinx or The Call of the Matterhorn
• teaching blocking, choreography, and acting technique to students
• collaborating with fellow Teaching Artists to adapt blocking and choreography for a variety of stages
• supporting a programmatic mission of “engaging and empowering students through an immersive, inclusive theatre experience.”
