If you’re energetic, love drama, and enjoy working with kids, then we may have just the job for you!
Drama by George is a Louisville-based educational theatre provider. Since 2007, we’ve presented live performances, drama workshops, and after-school drama clubs to tens of thousands of students across Kentuckiana. (Drama by George is owned by CITA member George Halitzka.)
As a Drama Club Instructor, you’ll help kids discover the joy of performing as you teach one or more after-school drama clubs onsite at elementary schools in the Louisville area.
Generally, our drama clubs run once a week for eight weeks during each semester (fall and spring). They always culminate in the performance of a short play. Instructors may teach one or several clubs each week. We provide an in-depth orientation, lesson plans, play scripts, props, and all of the other resources you need to successfully put on a play with children. You provide the energy, talent, and enthusiasm for theatre that will empower your students to succeed!
