Join Our Team

The Chester Playhouse is an artistic hub, specializing in the presentation of exceptional live performances, which serves the Municipality of Chester, including the village of Chester and surrounding communities. Operating since 1939, we have been a home for music, theatre, films, comedy, speakers and emerging community performances, and continue to present world-class artists from “around the corner” and around the world. Following a fire which damaged our existing Playhouse building, we are quickly pivoting to a “satellite” context, presenting live shows in various venues across our community, in a program we’re calling the “Playhouse Without Walls”.

We are committed to welcoming applicants with disabilities at any stage of the hiring process, and eager to support these individuals in any way that helps them.

Don’t meet every single requirement? Studies have shown that women and people of color are less likely to apply to jobs unless they meet every single qualification. At the Chester Playhouse, we are dedicated to building a diverse, inclusive and authentic workplace, so if you’re excited about this role but your past experience doesn’t align perfectly with every qualification in the job description, we encourage you to apply anyways. You may be just the right candidate for this or other roles.  The Chester Playhouse is eager to provide opportunities to applicants from all backgrounds, and is eager to accommodate the right person who brings a unique viewpoint to our organization.  We encourage all interested parties to reach out if they are interested, to discuss how we can best accommodate your application.
