Nature of Organization

The University of Washington School of Drama develops innovative and courageous artists and scholars poised to be the creative leaders of tomorrow. We produce a mainstage season of 6 plays in three on-campus theatres during the school year. These plays are attended by students, staff and faculty, and members of the Seattle-area community. We also host talks and other special events in collaboration with community organizations, both on and off campus. About 8,000 people pass through the doors of our theatres each year.

Duties and Responsibilities

Are you great with people? Thinking about a career in customer service, hospitality, social work, event management, retail, nonprofit management, or the arts? Want to get experience interfacing with the public and managing volunteers in a fun, art-filled environment? You’d make a great house manager!

The House Manager is the School of Drama’s primary representative to the public during all public performances, acting as a host to attendees, as well as supervising all student volunteers who are serving as ushers. The House Manager’s primary responsibilities are:

– Ensuring the comfort and safety of patrons
– Coordinating with ushers to seat the audience and keep the event on schedule
– Training ushers and helping them create a welcoming environment
– Supporting ticket office staff by assisting with check-in of ticket holders and providing back-up customer service for ticket sellers as needed
– Creating the nightly House Manager report, which is an account of all audience-related activity at each performance, including audience count, any safety-related incidents, and anything else of which School of Drama should be aware
– Managing set up and take down of special events (setting up chairs, setting out food on tables, etc.)
– Staying in close contact with the School of Drama Engagement office, and helping to inform the Engagement office about patron needs and feedback

****IMPORTANT SCHEDULE INFORMATION*****

This position does not have regular hours. It is focused around events taking place in the School of Drama, including plays, talks, receptions, and other special events. Work will primarily take place evenings and weekends, Tuesdays through Sundays, including Sunday matinees (afternoon performances).

During weeks when there is a show or a special event, you will work 3- to 6-hour evening shifts. Each shift includes significant "down" time during which you can do quiet tasks such as homework. During weeks where there are no shows or events, you will not work. It is important that our house managers are able to work evenings during show weeks. Show weeks for the 2018 – 2019 season are as follows:

October 20 – November 4, 2018
November 25 – December 9, 2018
January 19 – February 3, 2019
March 2 – 17, 2019
April 13 – 28, 2019
May 18 – June 2, 2019

Additional events will be added to this schedule over the course of the year.

Minimum Qualifications

This position is right for you if:

– You are able to maintain your composure and professionalism while answering questions, giving directions, explaining policies, and resolving potential conflicts while making sure the event stays on schedule
– You are highly reliable and punctual
– You feel comfortable acting as a trainer and guide to student volunteers, many of whom may be very inexperienced and/or shy
– You are confident and outgoing, and believe you can inspire those qualities in others
– You would rather be on your feet, interacting with people than sitting at a desk typing
– You value a schedule that ebbs and flows in terms of busy-ness, but keeps your daytimes (mostly) free

ACCESS, INCLUSION & DIVERSITY

The School of Drama has a strong commitment to diversity and access. We believe that art is for everyone, and we are actively engaged in dismantling structures that have historically prevented marginalized groups from accessing some arts experiences. Ensuring that every student at the UW has the opportunity to experience theatre is a high priority. Our ideal candidate will be someone who shares our dedication to creating inclusive, welcoming spaces where everyone—from seasoned theatre-goers to first-time attendees—feels comfortable and welcome.

Educational Benefits

You will emerge from this job with robust, marketable experience in volunteer management, customer service, event management, and decision making. You will have the opportunity to experience the process of theatrical production and get a first-hand look at how a play gets presented to an audience. You will have the opportunity to attend shows for free. You will have down time during shows to do class work. You will sometimes get free snacks.

To Apply

Please send a cover letter, resume, and 2 references to hollypla. Open until filled.

Pipeline Project Opportunities Fall 2018

Great opportunity to show your commitment to helping others on your resume and learn some valuable skills.

Tutor at an elementary, middle or high school in Seattle during Autumn 2018 Quarter!

The UW Pipeline Project recruits, trains and places UW students as volunteer tutors in Seattle schools and community organizations. We are recruiting tutors for Autumn quarter to work with about 40 different schools, and would love to have you! We’ll help you get set up tutoring in a K-12 classroom or community organization. Tutors make a minimum commitment of 2-3 hours per week for at least one quarter.

The schedule is flexible: schools need tutors Mon-Fri between 7:30 and 5pm. And we offer transportation to some of our partner schools that have the highest need for tutors.

Take an EDUC 401 Inner Pipeline Seminar Class for Credit:

Participate in a weekly Pipeline seminar and tutor for at least 2.5 hours a week at a Seattle school or community organization! All of our courses are Credit/No Credit, are I & S credits, and are listed under EDUC 401. The number of credits a student receives depends on the number of tutoring hours completed in addition to seminar attendance. 2 credits: weekly seminar and tutor 2-3 hours per week. Seminars are a fantastic opportunity to learn about issues in public education and tutoring strategies, while reflecting and learning from your tutoring site.

EDUC 401 Seminar Spotlights:

EDUC 401M: Tutoring Math and Science in K-12

Tuesdays from 6:00-7:20pm

In this seminar, students explore the world of math and science in K-12 schools by attending seminars that focus on current educational topics and tutoring at one of Pipeline’s partner schools. A key feature of the course is the opportunity to reflect on and share tutoring experiences in order to gain advice, suggestions, and pointers. Several seminars are devoted to best practices for science and math tutoring. The seminar also includes brief readings and discussion of critical topics in K-12 science and math education. Through the lens of social justice, this course will include conversation and critique of the social, political and economic factors that affect STEM education.

EDUC 401F: Immigrant and Refugee Education

Mondays from 10:30-11:50am

Students will explore different techniques and practices that are utilized to provide newly arrived immigrants and refugees accessible education. The class will have the opportunity to hear from community leaders and students from Sri Lanka, Mexico, Guatemala, Vietnam, the Philippines, East Africa, and the Middle East about their experiences in continuing their education in another country, learn policies that impact immigrants and refugees, and examine teaching practices that are utilized by schools and non-profits alongside tutoring in classrooms in the Greater Seattle Area.

EDUC 401P: Challenges and Opportunities in K-12 Education

Wednesdays from 5:00-6:20pm

This seminar is designed to provide a space where we can collectively reflect on and explore our tutoring experiences, emerging knowledge of teaching practices, and the relationships we build with the world. As a whole, this experience is intended to challenge us to raise questions about the purpose and nature of education in an increasingly diverse, global society. We will also always consider possibilities for a stronger, healthier and more equitable future by being realistic optimists!

EDUC 401D: K-12 Online Learning Community

Required: Spent at least 1 quarter tutoring K-12 students through UW Pipeline or a service learning class

Were you pipeline tutor in the past? Are you interested in continuing your involvement with K-12 students for academic credit, but don’t want to overwhelm your schedule? If so, then this seminar is for you! This online Inner Pipeline seminar allows you to explore current issues in education through interactive online modules, that include, but are not limited to, TED talks, blogs, and web-based conversations. In order to take this seminar, you must already have tutored through pipeline. To register, please email pipeline for an add code.
