We’re expanding our team!
Burnt Thicket Theatre is seeking two qualified individuals for the positions of Producing Associate and Marketing Associate. We aim to strengthen our staff team’s administrative capacity, create work opportunities for theatre artists/arts administrators/self-producers committed to living in Saskatoon, offer mentorship to individuals interested in Burnt Thicket’s mission, and cultivate a collaborative community within our company.
Our current Marketing Associate Kody Farrow will be stepping down to pursue full-time graduate studies this fall. We wish him all the best in his new endeavours, though his presence and good work will be sorely missed!
We’re grateful to SK Arts for awarding us a Lite operating grant, which makes our staff expansion possible.
The Producing Associate supports the operations, logistics, and information needs for productions and events by developing and applying appropriate production management and funding development processes. This is a contract position for 22 hours/month, under the leadership of the AD, supporting productions and events in collaboration with BTT staff, plus personal artistic development.
