Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival is looking for a Scenic Artist for the 2022 Season.

Exact scenic needs vary widely from season to season. Scenic Artist must come with a variety of skills to meet those needs and be comfortable trying new techniques on the go. The scenic artist will work closely with the scenic charge to plan how to accomplish the departments goals. With a very busy season with a lot of deadlines, the scenic department is often on an opposite schedule working late nights or overnights in order to keep pace with the build.

The 2022 Season includes productions of A Chorus Line, Fences, Little Red, Every Brilliant Thing, The River Bride (reading) and Much Ado About Nothing.

PSF will require all staff to provide proof of Covid-19 Vaccination as a condition of employment.

Full Covid Protocols are still being finalized for 2022 and will be adjusted based on union and CDC guidelines as the season approaches. At this time we plan on testing at least twice a week and all buildings will have MERV-13 filters in the ventilation systems.

Contract dates vary slightly by department but the overall season runs May 2 through August 12 with performances running from June 3 through August 7.

Inquiries about the Festival, positions or hiring process may be sent by email to Director of Production Josh Rose.
