Job (Edmonton): Students Club Facilitator – Citadel Theatre

The Citadel Theatre is seeking two dynamic, energetic, and self-motivated individuals to fill the role of Students Club Facilitators for the 2021/2022 theatre season.

Students Club offers a unique glimpse into the world of professional theatre to a wide range of local Junior and Senior High school students. Prior to certain performances of select Mainstage shows, schools are invited participate in a highly engaging, interactive workshop with one of our region’s talented theatre artists, covering a unique aspect of theatre – from choreography to design, from stage combat to Shakespeare.
