Teaching Artists

B.R.I.D.G.E Theatre Project

Lynwood, California

B.R.I.D.G.E Theatre Project is currently seeking experienced, dynamic Teaching Artists to execute after-school theater programs for elementary school youth grades 4-6 in Lynwood, California, 20 minutes south of downtown L.A. Each program team of two Teaching Artists will guide approximately 35 students in writing and performing original short plays with full dress/tech in a culminating presentation. Each Teaching Artist will also create their own cultural group ensemble performance piece and accompanying preparatory lesson plans.


Programs are extremely intensive and fast-paced, 7-10 weeks long, with workshops held 2-3 days per week for 2 hours after school (available Spring residencies are Monday and Wednesday), plus additional required planning time before and after each workshop at the school.


We offer competitive compensation for our Teaching Artists, with a starting teaching rate of $60/hour, plus stipends for mileage and outside planning time. All Teaching Artists contracted for the spring 2018 school semester must complete a paid training in December or January and pass a criminal background check. Teaching Artists joining our Lynwood team will be considered for future international programming.


To apply, please submit a cover letter and resume in Word/PDF format to Program Coordinator Ellen Den Herder at [email protected].
