Strawberry Theatre Workshop welcomes the opportunity to meet and collaborate with local artists. On average, half of every Strawshop cast and crew are artists new to the company. Unfortunately, current resources dictate that we do only do a few major projects each year, usually with a complete production company of twelve or smaller. As much as we would like to embrace the whole community, professional opportunities are scarce.
Digital résumés and headshots are welcome by email, but artists should not expect a reply unless inquiring about a specific staff opportunity (below). Unsolicited physical materials will be discarded.
As a general philosophy, the most impressive asset a potential new collaborator brings to an interview or an audition is familiarity with the company's previous work and an understanding of its mission.
Strawberry Theatre Workshop is currently accepting applications for the following staff positions:
Since 2004, Strawshop has produced thirty-one plays—including three original works, two narrative theatre adaptations, and ten West Coast premieres. The development of new scripts, however, is not a core mission of the company.
Digital scripts and project proposals are welcome by email, with the caveat that the company always has far more ideas than it has opportunity to produce. We do not have a staff dedicated to reviewing submissions, so playwrights should not expect a reply. Physical script submissions will be discarded.
The Strawberry Theatre Workshop Board is made up of volunteers in the community that nurture the growth of the company's principal sources of support: audience and donors. The commitment is one meeting each month, and a promise to extend the public face of the organization into each member's community life.
Friends of the company interested in becoming trustees should attend as many of our plays as possible, then contact Strawshop by email, to talk to a Board member or be invited to a future meeting.
