Announcing a National Search for City Theatre’s next Artistic Director:

Interested parties should not contact City Theatre directly. Please read the full position posting and direct all inquiries to Management Consultants for the Arts.  

City Theatre has launched a national search for its next Artistic Director. This co-leadership position (sharing executive responsibilities with Managing Director James McNeel) reports to the board of directors and oversees play and program selection, leads community engagement activities, sets artistic vision, and participates with the Managing Director and staff in key organizational areas such as planning, fundraising, visibility efforts, operational management (budgeting, staff oversight, board and donor relations, etc), and partnership building.

Over its 43 year history, and under the leadership of only two artistic directors during this time (Tracy Brigden and Marc Masterson), City Theatre has become a major incubator for the production and development of new plays, with additional focus on a robust education program and community partnerships. Looking to continue and expand these programmatic priorities, the City Theatre Board of Directors has appointed a search committee and engaged with the leading theater employment search firm in the country, Management Consultants for the Arts.
