Would you like to play a meaningful role with North America’s leading classical repertory theatre? At the Stratford Festival, we attract the world’s finest talent, offering a unique experience for staff, artists and actors alike. If you would like to be a part of this exciting organization, we are looking for someone to fill the role of:

Childminders (3 positions)

Reporting to the Directors’ Office Coordinator and working closely with the Stage Management teams, you will supervise minor children who have been contracted to perform onstage roles. Childminders are expected to attend all rehearsals as required, and all performances of the productions for which they are contracted. All shows have the possibility of a three (3) week extension beyond their current closing date, which all Childminders must be prepared to fulfill.

Past experience working with children is preferred but not expected. Previous work in theatre backstage is extremely helpful. Qualified applicants will be required to produce a clear current criminal record check, for the vulnerable sector, as part of the recruitment process.
