Creative Enrichment Teacher (Grades K-2) | Drama Club Teaching Artist (Grades 2-8)

I’m so glad I found Drama by George. Everyone here is awesome to work with, plus I get the opportunity to use my theater and teaching skills together to make a difference in the lives of kids. As a teaching artist in Louisville, I can’t think of a better place to work.” (Amy Brown, Former Teaching Artist)

Creative Enrichment Teacher (Grades K-2)

As a part-time Creative Enrichment Teacher, you’ll help kids discover the joy of the performing arts as you teach after-school programs onsite at elementary schools in the Louisville area for grades K-2.

No theatre experience is necessary. If you have experience with young children, we’ll teach you everything you need to know to get creative with kids!

Drama Fun Clubs meet once a week for eight weeks during each semester (fall and spring). They always culminate in the performance of a short pantomimed (acting without words) play. Instructors teach two or more clubs each week. We provide an in-depth orientation, lesson plans, props, and all of the other resources you need to successfully put on a play with children. You provide the energy, talent, and enthusiasm that will empower your students to succeed.

Drama by George is a Louisville-based educational theatre provider. We grow students with compassion and character through the power of stories. Since 2007, we’ve presented live performances, theatre workshops, summer camps, and after-school drama clubs to more than 88,000 students in the Kentuckiana region.

  • You can lead a great lesson from memory with minimal reliance on notes.
  • You have reliable transportation, including the capability to transport large boxes of props to schools.
  • You are available during the after-school hours (at many of our schools, that means roughly 3:30-5:15 pm) at least two days per week, Monday-Friday, during the upcoming academic semester.
  • You can lift and carry up to 25 pounds.
  • You are willing to wear a mask while teaching if it’s required by the school.

What We Provide

  • Competitive compensation of $25 per hour for your skills as a teaching artist. (Training pays at a rate of $20 per hour.)
  • The supplies, equipment, and administrative support you need so that you can focus on the kids.
