  Production / Artistic / Management and Administration Associates Program

White Plains Performing Arts Center’s Conservatory Theatre; a critically-acclaimed, tuition-based,
educational theatre program for ages 10 – 25 (located in the heart of Westchester in downtown White
Plains) is seeking smart, talented and dedicated early-career arts administrators and educational theatre
enthusiasts to join its staff in support of the upcoming ‘10-‘11 Season comprised of three mainstage
musicals, workshops, master classes, fundraising events and a two-month summerstock program.

Production / Artistic / Management or Administration Associates work with the company throughout
the season (October 2010 – June 2011) and will take on a variety of project-based responsibilities in the
areas of associate producing, assistant directing, front-of-house, box office, concessions, fundraising,
marketing/publicity, education, set building/painting, costume coordination, props and running crew.
Associates must commit to working with the company for the span of the entire season or on a show by
show basis. Artistic / Production associates must commit to a production’s rehearsal schedule that
includes early weekday evenings and some weekends. Outstanding Associates who prove their
competency may also be eligible (if recommended) to work on mainstage shows, staged readings and
other events.

The Associates program is an excellent way for serious-minded high school performing arts students,
college students currently enrolled at a local college or university or recent arts administration /
educational theatre graduates to gain professional, hands-on experience by getting in on the ground
floor and working on the front lines of a dynamic, regional theatre that possesses a positive, supportive
and friendly “family-like atmosphere”. These positions require an average time commitment of 10-20
hours / week and are flexible around a day job, school or other schedule commitments.

All positions are in a volunteer capacity with no pay, but community service hours are possible on a
case-by-case basis as well as a professional letter of recommendation. Cross-training in multiple
departments can be arranged upon request.

Applicants who are smart, organized, energetic, computer savvy (MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint and social
networking sites) and possibly have their own car (that they don't mind using for errands related to
production if necessary) are encouraged to email (education@wppac.com) a cover letter, resume, area
of interest and availability for consideration by Friday, October 1. Interviews will be held shortly
thereafter.

For more information or questions; contact Jeremy Quinn, WPPAC Conservatory Theatre Artistic Director
at (914) 328-1600 ext. 16 or email the address above.
