Work with T2
We invite you to join us in the creation of remarkable live theatre.
TheatreSquared is one of the nation’s fastest-growing theatre companies, with a reputation for producing work of the highest standard and, as a playwright-led company, for cultivating the development of new plays for the American stage. The company’s new, 50,000 square-foot, two-venue facility is currently under construction and scheduled for completion in 2019 (ournextstage.org). Located in progressive downtown Fayetteville, Arkansas (Top Five Best Places to Live in the U.S., 2018 U.S. News & World Report), the theatre is at the hub of a region that recently surpassed the half-million population mark and is consistently ranked top in the nation for its mix of an affordable cost of living and high quality of life.
As TheatreSquared transitions to a world-class, permanent home, the company is expanding its team. TheatreSquared celebrates diversity and commits to creating an inclusive environment for all employees. Candidates of all backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.
To apply, submit an employment resume and references to email@example.com. Full-time positions may also require work samples and a cover letter.

TheatreSquared celebrates diversity and commits to creating an inclusive environment for all employees. Candidates of all backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.
A flexibly scheduled and talented part-time work force plays a major role in creating the company’s quality of patron service, top-notch professional productions, and educational outreach. These positions are also a crucial pipeline to the company’s full-time team — in fact, sixty percent (60%) of TheatreSquared’s current full-time staff began with the company in part-time positions and were trained or promoted to full-time roles.

These benefits include health; dental; paid time off; paid parental leave; professional development allowance; employer-sponsored long-term and short-term disability; $100,000 in employer-sponsored term life insurance; and voluntary 401(k).

The T2 Teen Council is a unique program designed to bring together 10 high school students from all over Northwest Arkansas who are passionate and motivated to learn about the inner-workings of a professional theatre. Council members have the opportunity to attend productions and learn from professionals that are working in the field, while they work behind the scenes to make live theatre happen.
The T2 Teen Council will meet monthly from September through May (5:30-7pm, the first Tuesday of each month) where dinner will be provided. The meetings will include play analysis and dramaturgy, visits with guest artists and discussions of productions. If a council member is unable to attend a meeting because they are currently involved in rehearsal for a production, they will just need to let us know in advance.
In addition to the monthly meetings, council members will be expected to complete 40 service hours for the theatre over the course of the year (approximately 5 hours each month). Service hours can be accumulated through such tasks as ushering, hanging posters, assisting in education programs for younger students, assisting with backstage tasks and completing artistic challenges. T2 Teen council members who are in good standing will receive free tickets to TheatreSquared productions and a free T-shirt and other perks.
