We encourage you to apply for at-will, seasonal employment or training opportunities with Williamstown Theatre Festival as we hope to be operating back in Williamstown, MA during the summer of 2021. At this time, however, we do not know if running a theatre season will be possible in light of federal, state, and local guidance concerning the global health pandemic. We encourage you to apply for these at-will positions, which will be contingent upon whether or not we can proceed with a full season. We will post an update here and will communicate directly with active applicants as our plans for summer 2021 become clear. All postings and job offers are, therefore, subject to change.
