Curriculum Manager

Posted: 03/28/2021

Orlando Repertory Theatre (“Orlando REP”), one of Central Florida’s oldest arts groups, is the State of Florida’s only professional Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA), and the seventh iteration of a company founded in 1926. Each year, we reach over 100,000 individuals in our three-theatre facility and in the community through our season of professional productions, a Youth Academy of camps and classes, and innovative educational and community engagement programming. We work closely with the University of Central Florida in many different capacities –most notably, hosting the Master of Fine Arts program in Theatre for Young Audiences. We believe the work of theatre is fostering empathy and sharing stories representing many voices, including those voices that have been marginalized in contemporary America. To that end, we embrace the power of cultural diversity and inclusion on our staff (full time, part time, and seasonal) and our Board of Directors. We continuously strive to build and maintain a team that reflects and represents the diverse community we serve.
