Blue Jeans Theatre is seeking a musical director/ composer for a residency opportunity in Calgary in May 2021. The show being developed is a collaboratively created musical by Shannon Murphy called Ella the Elk. This queer theatre-for-young-audiences project looks at the complications of puberty and gender identity through the eyes of an Albertan elk.

The musical director/ composer will lead the composition of the musical score of the show during a two-week period in May. We are seeking a confident team player to work closely with the actor/musicians and the Blue Jeans team for the creation of songs and musical components. Notation of the score will be required.

Payment will be by honourarium.


Blue Jeans Theatre is a queer theatre collective founded by Shannon Murphy and Kristy Benz. Our aim is to make theatre accessible to the public, to unite Calgarians through art, and to spread joy and acceptance.


Submit to with your resume and a sample of past work. Submissions are due by end of day on February 7th.

Blue Jean Theatre seeks to meet the 35//50 Initiative. Priority will be given to self-identifying LGBTQ2SIA+ and/or BIPOC applicants.
