Inviting Calgary-based emerging & experienced artists to join 2016-17 school residency roster

The Evergreen Grow-A-Show residency program is a cornerstone of the company programming. Our innovative curriculum-linked residencies get kids exploring science and the environment through theatre. Working with K-6 elementary schools across the province, artist and students “grow a show” through a series of playwriting and performance workshops over a period of one week. The students then perform an environmental extravaganza of their own creation, showcasing the learning from the week.

We are looking for energetic, inventive artists who are comfortable both as leaders and team players. Some teaching experience with young people is an asset. Artists are hired on a per-residency basis (weeklong contracts) through the school year.

Please submit a CV and brief cover letter highlighting your teaching experience to Artistic Producer Valmai Goggin at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Deadline to submit: October 14, 2016.

We highly encourage applicants learn about the Evergreen model and mandate prior to auditioning. For more information, please visit www.evergreentheatre.com
