Become a Teen Assistant

What is a Teen Assistant?
Our Teen Assistants are role models to our 2nd-5th grade students. Preferably our Teen Assistants have been active in our programs or have been active in other arts programs within school or the community. They are an extension of the teaching staff helping to create a safe and creative environment for the younger students.

What does a Teen Assistant do?
Our Teen Assistants participate in all aspects of the production i.e. warming up students, helping with choreography, running lines with students, taking detailed blocking notes for student and teaching reference. The Teen Assistants learn the show in it's entirety and assist with the production backstage during the technical rehearsals and performances.

What is expected from the Teen Assistants?
Teen Assistants attend every rehearsal, tech rehearsal, and performance. Report any conflicts in advanced. Participate in all class activities. Make an effort to socialize and play with the students. Make sure students are not left unattended in any area of the theatre. Treat the theatre and all who enter it with respect. Support the Teaching Artists, working as a team!

What is the Teen Assistant's compensation?
Teen Assistants are given a stipend of $100 for the rehearsal period
and then an additional $50 for Tech and performances
If you are unable to attend both technical rehearsals and performances, pay will be deducted to find compensate "fill-in" Teen Assistant.
