a Company of Fools is looking for a dynamic, experienced and organized General Manager.
The General Manager will report to the Board of Directors and work alongside the Artistic Director. This is a part-time, permanent, salary position.
a Company of Fools has been delighting audiences all across Canada since 1990 as Ottawa’s original professional Shakespeare company. Inspired by the rogue Elizabethan players that once entertained audiences out of doors and at the Globe theatre, we have built a reputation as a highly physical troupe doing interactive shows both indoors and out. Our award winning shows have toured all across Canada, from Halifax to Vancouver to Yellowknife, (and that one time in China).
The Fools are best known for our Torchlight Shakespeare Series, where 90-minute versions of Shakespeare’s hits are played by a nimble cast of 3-6 performers in a fast-paced, engaging and Foolishly interactive manner, in community parks, praised by critics and audiences alike.
The mandate of the Fools is to produce innovative, entertaining and accessible shows based on the works of William Shakespeare. We produce original works inspired by Shakespeare as well as performing his plays.
