Managing Director - (posted 2/25/17 by Forward Theater Company)
Forward Theater Company (FTC), a professional contemporary theater company based in Madison, Wisconsin, is launching a search for a Managing Director.
FTC was founded in 2009 and is a resident company of Overture Center for the Arts in downtown Madison. Our mission is to “create a home base for Wisconsin’s theater professionals and audiences, that expands the cultural and economic life of the greater Madison area.” A balance of bold artistic programming with shrewd financial management has allowed Forward to finish each of its seasons in the black.
FTC’s operations are structured around an unique organizational structure, which balances governance between their Board of Directors and an Advisory Company, consisting of area theater professionals. Open communication and transparency around their artistic and financial needs are at the core of their success.
Since its founding, FTC has been led by a Producing Artistic Director, with a growing staff that now includes two full-time and four part-time employees. (Over 100 additional contracts go to artists hired to work on our productions each year.) As we move towards our tenth anniversary season in 2018-2019, we are looking to add a full-time Managing Director to start in January 2018.
Candidates for the position must have prior nonprofit leadership experience, preferably with arts organizations. Wisconsin residence (current or past) is a plus, per our mission. Ability to work in a collegial, cooperative environment is a must.
Interested applicants should email a cover letter, resume and references to email@example.com between February 1 and March 31, 2017.

Seeking PAID Performers for Menopause, The Musical - (posted 2/13/17 by Palace Theater in the Dells)
The Palace Theater in the Wisconsin Dells is seeking Female Musical Theatre PERFORMERS for ALL roles in its upcoming production Menopause, The Musical!
This hilarious musical parody staged to classic tunes from the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s will have you cheering and dancing in the aisles.
CASTING BREAKDOWN - They are four women who bond because of menopause symptoms.
SOAP STAR (SS): [soprano with a belt, lyric soprano to E, belt to B] attractive, well preserved, and buxom. She is obviously passed the ingénue character that she has played in a popular soap opera. She is struggling to come to grips with aging unsuccessfully because it affects her livelihood as well as her life. She is the most sallow of the four but manipulative because of her celebrity. Her emotions run from fearful to frustrated. The evolution of her friendship with the others is the result of having to look beyond beauty, from what is skin deep to what is real. Age range: 40 to 50.
IOWA HOUSEWIFE (IH): [low chest voice, sweet innocent sound, should be able to belt to C] not quite in shape, her clothes make her look frumpier than she really is (i.e. no sense of style). She is in town with her husband who is on a convention and is trying to rekindle their romance on a second honeymoon…to no avail. She wears bifocals and carries her handbag under her arm constantly. IH had her children later in life so they are still at home. She has naïve wisdom; she prattles oblivious to the fact that no one is paying attention; she is the product of being a housewife and a mother. Until her hormones started to surge, she got her power from being a wife and mother. She is discovering – but waffles as she is doing it – what her husband and kids have known all along. She has strength… and the ability to discern her own destiny. Age range: 44 to 50.
EARTH MOTHER (EM): [warm pleasant voice, strong chest voice to C] very healthy, vegetarian, survivor of the 60’s drug era; she could wear Birkenstocks and socks; herbalist, astrologist. She lives on a community farm in Connecticut with her “husband” whom she met at Woodstock. She is roly poly. OF the four she has the least baggage…she is warmer, and the least judgmental. She is the Mother Earth character that one would expect the IH to be…as long as she has had sleep. She doesn’t get angry….only cranky. And is not self-conscious about who and what she is. She is the most playful. Unlike most women at this age what are put in the position of parenting their parents due to aging or ill health, she has been mothering her mother for the last several decades (and marriages). She loves and is lovable, both characteristics draw people to her. Age range: 45 to 55.
PROFESSIONAL WOMAN (PW): [big belt voice to E, should be able to sing gospel and improvise] African American, with an attitude; she is in the position of power in her career and has earned every dollar working twice as hard as her male counterparts; great legs under short skirts; a control freak, out of control with the big M and has little patience with the havoc it is reeking on her life. Her ride to the top of the heap (i.e. owning her own company) has left her with little relationship… to her daughter, her mother….even her race. She was never about Black Power, just power. And it has always been difficult for her to identify if it was fear of failure or fear of success that was her great motivator. The frustration of dealing with the raging hormones is not only with the symptoms, but in her inability to control them. This perceived failure allows other parts of being a woman to surface including accepting the knowledge that she is, in fact, not alone on her mountain. Age range: 45 to 55.
