Join Our Team

The Latiné Musical Theatre Lab is actively recruiting for several leadership positions. Currently, all positions are volunteer (paid a small stipend) and part-time. As an organization committed to bringing wealth, both artistically and financially, to our community, stipend amount will increase as the organization grows, eventually transitioning to salaried positions. 
 
For now, the volunteer work of all artists involved in the building of the Lab serves to create the change we wish to see for Latiné artists in our industry. We aim to pay it forward not just to our current generation of artists, but to future, aspiring generations of writers, producers, actors, directors and fellow theatre artists of all walks of life.

Our goals for 2022 include:

 

Approximately 5 hours a week of in-person (in NYC), hybrid, and virtual programming, including:

  • A dedicated writers’ group for musical theatre development

  • Open salons and round tables for writers

  • A table read series with dramaturgical support

  • Monthly events, including but not limited to concerts, readings, 4x15s, and cabarets

  • Regular seminars and workshops with industry professionals

  • Educational workshops and classes for new and up-and-coming composers, lyricists, and librettists, taught by our writers

  • Industry mixers and social events

 

Relationship building with producers, theatres, and other arts organizations, especially those run by Latiné artists and serving Latiné communities, in order to:

  • Build and enhance relationships between our writers and these organizations

  • Secure development and production opportunities at theatres around the country for our writers’ work

  • Seek partnerships and support to forward the progress of Latiné artists in our industry

 

Producing support for works from our writers, including but not limited to:

  • Connecting teams with producers, casting directors, actors, musical directors, directors, choreographers, stage managers, dramaturgs, and any additional artistic personnel.

  • Helping to acquire space, funds, and other resources as needed for each project

  • Helping with advertising, design, and other means of production, with a focus on providing artistic, technical, and work-oriented support.
