Employment Opportunities

We are always looking for talented Directors/Assistant Directors and Technitions. If you are interested in working for us please email  your resume to Artistic Director Rebecca Pate at rebecca.pate@gwrymca.org 

Volunteer Opportunities:     Let's put the "Community" back in Community Theatre!
Have you ever dreamed of working in Show Biz?  The Chesterfield Community Theatre is always looking for volunteers to join our collaborative family-- no previous experience required, but enthusiasm and curiosity are a must!  We are seeking volunteers to contribute in costume and prop construction, publicity, rehearsal support, concessions, and fundraising events.  As productions evolve, specific needs will also be posted on this webpage.  For more information, please email Artistic Director Rebecca Pate at rebecca.pate@gwrymca.org

Stage/Production Management Oppurtunities
Stage managers are the invisible stars of live theatre... if a backstage crew is at the top of their game, the show goes so smoothly that you'd never know they were there!  During each Chesterfield Community Theatre production, 3-4 student volunteers are selected to serve as stage crew.  These middle school, high school, or college level students attend all rehearsals, helping to develop the "technical" side of the production: organizing and constructing props, collecting and fitting costumes, choreographing scene changes, and assisting the director.  During performances, armed with headset and flashlight, they disappear into the wings to act out their own impressive show backstage.  For information or to apply for a Stage/Production Management slot, please email Artistic Director Rebecca Pate at rebecca.pate@gwrymca.org

Summer Drama Day Camps at the West County Family YMCA
Members and non-members, ages 5 to 14, have the opportunity to join various summer performing arts camps which focus on acting, musical theatre, magic, and even circus performing!  Included are the Actor's Studio camp and Summer Stock camp.  All camps are led by professional and college performers.
