Currently not hiring for any staff positions.
We hire on a project-by-project basis and are eager to connect with local artists in our field. Check out ways to let us know about you and your work in order to be considered for upcoming projects.
Actors: Please email headshots/resumes. Project-specific auditions are by invitation only; however, we also attend the annual Theatre Bay Area general auditions.
Designers, Stage Managers, and Technicians: Please send your resumes, with cover letter, to Stephanie Alyson Henderson. Stage Managers, in your cover letter, please specify what color spike tape you would be and why. Along with professional technicians and designers, Crowded Fire is interested in current theater students and other qualified individuals to assistant stage-manage, production-assist, volunteer, or shadow the Production Manager at a technical rehearsal.
Dramaturgs: Resumes and cover letters can be sent to the literary office.
Playwrights: Due to the high volume of scripts received, we are unable to accept unsolicited scripts. However, we have a relationship with many new play development companies, including Playwrights Foundation and PlayGround locally, and Playwrights’ Center (MN), New Dramatists and The Lark (NY), from which we regularly solicit new plays.
Are you a Bay Area designer or technician who has worked with us on at least one show? You may be eligible to apply for Crowded Fire’s IGNITE FUND, supporting the growth of and enhancing the working lives of theater designers and technicians in the Bay Area. Click here for guidelines and to apply.
We love volunteers! CFT is a nonprofit theater, and a donation of your time is a deeply meaningful way to give. If you are interested in operating concessions, assisting with administrative tasks, or are handy behind the scenes, we’d love to hear from you. We’ll shower you with love and complimentary admission to our shows! Email Managing Director Tiffany Cothran with your interest and availability.
