Are you looking for flexible, fun, part-time teaching work catered around your availability — with a friendly and supportive theatre company? If so, we would love to hear from you!
Treasure Trunk Theatre (located in Brooklyn, NY) is seeking part-time teaching artists for our roster of talented, enthusiastic, and inspiring teachers.
Currently hiring both lead and assistant teaching artists. Candidates with extensive experience will be considered immediately for our lead teacher training process. We promote from within, so those hired as assistants will be given the opportunity to apply in the future for the lead training process as well.
Our Mission: At Treasure Trunk Theatre, we create a nurturing space for children to develop their imagination, confidence, and creativity through the magic of storytelling. We encourage self-expression and celebrate individuality. We use the power of dramatic play to inspire each child to be their unique self, to connect with others, and to see the world in an empathic way.
Those who will best succeed in this role:
● have experience working on a collaborative team, as well as experience working with young children in a childcare, babysitting, family, classroom, camp and/or arts setting.
● are engaging and able to adapt quickly and creatively to meet the needs of the indoor and/or outdoor classroom.
● ensure the highest level of safety throughout our class or camp day.
● display confidence and a willingness to be playful.

Dates: Currently seeking teaching artists with flexible availability, especially for weekend birthday parties and school holiday camps.
Hours: We have a variety of morning classes, after school classes, and weekend events and birthday parties. Availability forms are sent out weekly to our roster of teachers, so we work with your schedule.
