Open Position Announcement:

Managing Director

Who You Are

Are you a visionary, dynamic leader who is a skilled collaborator, active and compassionate listener? Are you a bridge builder and a champion for the arts? Do you have strong organizational management, financial acumen and budgeting skills? Have you demonstrated the ability to unite, motivate and lead a team focused on long-term objectives, audience development and fundraising? If you answered yes to the above, then we want to talk to you.

Who We Are

Theatre Charlotte is proud to be the longest running art institution in Charlotte, North Carolina, with a reputation for high quality productions and an inviting family feel. We value our people who make us who we are, whether they are on stage, behind the scenes, serving on our board, sitting in our audience or working as a member of our staff.

Our theatre space is a 226 seat proscenium style venue built in 1941. In December 2020, a fire caused significant damage to the auditorium and theatre equipment. Performances were held within the community last season and with repairs underway, productions are scheduled to resume in the space in Fall of this year.

Theatre Charlotte serves to inspire all generations through the power of the stories we present and the life experiences we share. We recognize theatre as a reflection of our society, and that all people’s race, ethnicity, gender identity, culture, uniqueness, background, and beliefs should be celebrated and reflected onstage, backstage, on the staff and board, and in the audience. We are proud to deepen our commitment to the movement for equity, diversity, inclusion and access with the knowledge that we cannot do it alone and will dedicate time, talent and resources necessary to ensure a more inclusive future at Theatre Charlotte.
