Founded in 1835 and located in Washington DC, The National Theatre has a unique and rich history at the dynamic cultural heart of the Capitol Region. Delivering world class theatre and programs to creative, diverse, internationally connected and culturally sophisticated audiences of all ages, backgrounds and interests remains the core mission of The National Theatre Foundation, its Board, staff and partners. The National Theatre has two performance spaces – a 1,700 seat main theatre and the 125 seat Helen Hayes Gallery used for educational programming and intimate performances – and 4,300 sq. ft. of renovated office space.
The Executive Director will immediately assume full management responsibility for The National Theatre, its people, vendor relationships, contracts, maintenance, branding, marketing, infrastructure, tech and operations. Reporting to the Board through its Chair, and working with a small but dedicated staff, the Executive Director’s initial priorities will be to: evaluate the state of play and take over day-to-day management of The National Theatre; cultivate strong relations with The Nederlander Organization and diverse individual, institutional and government funders and constituencies; design and ensure delivery of important and dynamic educational programs; understand the attributes of the region’s audiences and their interests, and drive The National Theatre branding, outreach, ticketing and revenue optimization activities.
