Stratford Festival
Deadline:

Description


THE ORGANIZATION

The Stratford Festival is North America’s largest classical repertory theatre company. Each season, we present more than a dozen productions in four distinctive venues (one of which is currently being rebuilt).

We produce acclaimed productions of Shakespeare’s plays, other works from the classical repertoire, and contemporary dramas and musicals, while actively fostering and supporting the development of Canadian theatre.

Embracing our 66-year heritage of tradition and innovation, we seek to bring theatre alive for increasingly diverse audiences, pursue new artistic avenues, and expand the scope and reach of our work beyond the stage itself. Thus we also present the Stratford Festival Forum, conduct our artistic R&D program, the Laboratory, and are midway through a ten-year project – unique in North America – to film all of Shakespeare’s plays.

With an annual budget of $61 million, the Festival earns 95% of its revenue through ticket sales as well as ancillary and fundraising activities, making it one of the most self-sufficient cultural organizations on the continent.

We have built an $80-million endowment fund to support our operating activities, including training, education outreach, play development and capital projects.

Our new $70-million Tom Patterson Theatre Centre will open in time for our 2020 season. This 600-seat state-of-the-art facility will both affirm and vastly enhance the Festival’s position as a world leader in live theatre.

By attracting the finest talent from Canada and the world, and by providing the conditions and training that enable artists to achieve their most courageous work, we immerse our audiences in a theatregoing experience that is innovative, entertaining, and unsurpassed anywhere in the world: one that is deeply relevant to, and reflective of, their lives and communities.

THE POSITION

With your passion for the performing arts and your desire to become part of the Stratford Festival’s vibrant senior leadership team, you will have a positive impact on the organization as its new Senior Director, Marketing & Audience Development.

This unique opportunity will leverage your past achievements and extensive knowledge of marketing and audience development while providing a working environment that is personally and professionally rewarding. The Senior Director, Marketing & Audience Development is a key representative of the organization and a keen advocate of theatre with stakeholders, the community at large and other arts organizations.
Our patrons are our lifeblood – they purchase tickets, make donations, and contribute to the communal experience of live theatre by reacting to the work of our artists. The role of the Senior Director, Marketing & Audience Development is to increase the public profile of the Festival, to introduce new patrons to our work, and to improve patron retention rates.
