NEW YORK STAGE AND FILM SUMMER SEASON 2021

New York Stage and Film is hiring for our 2021 Summer Season in Poughkeepsie, NY.  Working in several venues, NYSAF will serve the needs of theater and film artists today, bringing them safely together in community to generate new stories and reconnect with one another and audiences. Seasonal positions will run from early July through early August with some pre-season preparation for certain roles. 

 

For 37 years, NYSAF has operated as a vital incubator for artists and their work, a catalyst for stories that start with us and continue across the country and around the world. With artist-driven flexibility, resources and opportunities are shaped to meet projects at every step of their development. NYSAF is eager to gather once again, reaffirmed in our commitment to supporting the nation’s leading generative artists in the creation of innovative and bold stories for the stage and the screen.

 

New York Stage and FIlm’s 2021 Summer Season will operate with COVID-19 safety procedures in place, including testing, PPE, social distancing, and regular cleaning in order to keep our community safe. All procedures will be detailed and communicated prior to arrival.

NYSAF’s return to in-person programming in Summer 2021 is contingent on federal, state and local policies concerning the ongoing pandemic which may effect our ability to conduct the Summer Season in person. We encourage you to apply for these at-will positions and will post updates here and communicate directly with active applicants should any changes occur. All postings and job offers are, therefore, subject to change.

 

NYSAF is an equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants shall be afforded equal employment opportunities without discrimination because of race, creed, color, national origin, sex, age, disability or marital status. Candidates from populations underrepresented in the theater field are strongly encouraged to apply.
