Job Details


The Barnstormers, Johns Hopkins University’s oldest and largest student theater group, are seeking a Director and Musical Director for our Spring 2019 production of Cabaret. This entirely student-run theatre group will perform the show in Swirnow Theater, a state-of-the-art black box space on the Johns Hopkins Homewood campus in Baltimore, MD.

We hope to hold auditions February 8-9 and begin rehearsals soon afterwards. There will likely not be rehearsal during our school’s Spring Break, March 16-24. Performances will take place April 5-7 and April 12-14.

Although the university does not provide housing, the Barnstormers can help to find appropriate housing for any out-of-towners.  The salary for the Director will be $3,000 with up to a $500 stipend for travel. The salary for the Musical Director will be $3,000 with up to a $500 stipend for travel, as well. Interviews will take place the weekend of January 26 and may be conducted in person or by phone/Skype/Facetime. If you are selected for an interview, you will be notified by January 21.

This listing is for two separate positions. To apply, please email a resume and cover letter detailing your creative vision and why you want to work with us to Julia Zimmerman at

Other information:

Rehearsal schedule: Six days a week; generally 6-10pm on weeknights and a longer rehearsal on whichever day over the weekend has fewer conflicts.

Weekly production team meetings to discuss what has been accomplished, what still needs to be done, and any problems that have arisen.

The Barnstormers is completely extracurricular, so every student involved works with us on top of all of their schoolwork.

Please direct any questions to Julia Zimmerman at
