The Audience Outreach Coordinator will work closely with and report to the Director of Marketing to implement strategies with a range of New York City communities, with particular emphasis on African American, Latinx, Middle Eastern and Asian residents, to achieve audience engagement goals expressed within the theater’s long-range plan to include underrepresented populations.

·         Develop and strategize around the development of communication and engagement plans, in concert with Director of Marketing, artists and show staff.

·         Design engaging promotions and incentives for community groups.

·         Build and nurture relationships with local partners, sponsors and community leaders.

·         Plan and execute engagement events, including community events, open houses, season kick-off events, talkbacks, pre- and post-show gatherings/conversations, etc.

·         Track and report on community partner attendance and experience via surveys and follow up.



·         Self-motivated work ethic and the ability to multi-task with ease.

·         Must possess a meaningful passion for the arts and belief in the life-altering power of theater.

·         Excellent verbal and written communication, and people skills.

·         Proven track record of cultivating engagement through grassroots campaigns.

·         Demonstrable success crafting, courting, securing and nurturing unique and strategic local partnerships.

This is a part-time, hourly paid position reporting to the Director of Marketing and will play an integral part of the theater’s Marketing team. Please email a cover letter and resume to Claire Graves at [email protected] and indicate Community Outreach Coordinator in the subject line.
