Lights up, cue the music, move the set pieces and let the story unfold. The Theater at Saint Ann’s is at the heart of the school and the Technical Theater program offers students the skills and opportunities to experience the joys of creating live performances with an ensemble of peers. From building scenery, to the hanging and focusing of lights, the Technical Theater students at Saint Ann’s absorb all aspects of creating the world of a production. They take on backstage roles including ground crew, calling shows, running the lights and sound, and the programming for QLab and Ion. We are seeking an experienced Technical Theater technician, who can share their knowledge of stagecraft with Middle School and High School students, and collaborate with Theater Department colleagues on the lighting and / or sound designs for our productions for the 2023-2024 school year. The appropriate candidate will have experience with the technical rehearsal process, and will be available for evening and matinee performances on several productions throughout the school year.



Saint Ann’s is among the largest and most selective independent schools in New York City, known for the breadth and depth of its curriculum in academic disciplines and the visual and performing arts. Since its founding in 1965, Saint Ann’s has embraced a commitment to education for its own sake, oriented to the capacities of each individual student, free of the encumbrances of formal grading, prizes, and rankings. The lives of our graduates speak powerfully to the potential of an education based on these principles to ignite a love of learning and sustain creative energy in every field of endeavor. We accomplish this by bringing together talented teachers with creative and motivated students. Seeking to create a community rooted in trust and equity, we invite each other to take risks, pursue knowledge, and celebrate growth. Saint Ann’s is committed to centering anti-racism in the life of the school.
