Theatre Job Opening: Eastside Story Guild / Grandview Calvary Baptist

Want a job?
Hello Ron -
I've been in touch with you before about our small theatre project called The Eastside Story Guild when we entered our life of David piece into the Vancouver Fringe Festival. We've recently received funding (through a World Vision partnership) that will enable us to hire a Theatre Arts Program Director and a World Music Program Director. Each position is 1/2 time (approx. $21,000 annually with benefits). While the Story Guild is intergenerational the bulk of the program is with children and youth so these positions require an enthusiasm working with kids in the performing arts. They also require someone committed to the Christian story and vision.
I thought you might have suggestions on where we might post these positions or connections to individuals in the arts community here in Vancouver and beyond who might want to spend a few years with this small but exciting initiative in community theatre. I''ve attached both the announcement and the more extended descriptions. I welcome any leads.


Theatre Arts Program Director

The Eastside Story Guild is looking for someone to develop and direct the theatre arts component of this church-based, multicultural and intergenerational theatre project where children and youth take the lead in telling the stories of the Jewish and Christian scriptures.
The applicant must have enthusiasm and training or experience both in working with children/youth and in teaching/directing theatre arts. The position is half-time and somewhat seasonal.
The Eastside Story Guild is based out of Grandview Calvary Baptist Church which is located in the artistically dynamic and culturally diverse Grandview Woodlands neighbourhood in Vancouver, BC.
For a more detailed description of this work opportunity as well as information on salary and benefits please see
Send cover letter, resume, and statement of faith to ESG, 1803 E.1st. Ave, Vancouver, BC V5N 1B3 by August 24, 2007. Position to begin September or October 2007.
