Make Theatre. Make a Difference. Make Money.

Want to make a difference in the lives of kids with your passion for theatre? We may have just the job for you! We’ve filled our open positions for fall 2021, but we expect to be hiring again in January 2022. Please apply now for consideration next semester.

Drama Club Teaching Artist

Drama by George is a Louisville-based educational theatre provider. We grow students with compassion and character through the power of stories. Since 2007, we’ve presented live performances, drama workshops, and after-school drama clubs to more than 88,000 students in the Kentuckiana region.

As a part-time Drama Club Teaching Artist, you’ll help kids discover the joy of performing as you teach after-school drama clubs onsite at elementary and/ or middle schools in the Louisville area. We offer separate programs for grades K-2, 3-5, and 6-8; you can choose to teach any or all of those age groups.

Generally, our drama clubs run once a week for eight weeks during each semester (fall and spring). They always culminate in the performance of a short play. Instructors teach two or more clubs each week. We provide an in-depth orientation, lesson plans, play scripts, props, and all of the other resources you need to successfully put on a play with children. You provide the energy, talent, and enthusiasm for theatre that will empower your students to succeed!
