Jobs at ImprovBoston
Work for ImprovBoston and be a part of a fun and creative community!
Depending on your position at the Theater you could see free shows, get discounts or tuition waivers on classes, and (maybe most of all) contribute to the incredibly fun comedy theater experience that is ImprovBoston!
We are currently looking for a part-time Bookkeeper with 3-5 years bookkeeping and clerical experience. Must be proficient using Quickbooks, Excel and have a solid understanding of Accrual and basic GAAP accounting practices. You will be responsible for processing accounts payable, invoices, bank deposits, preparing business compliance filings such as 1099′s, and sales tax. The position requires a detail-oriented self-starter who has the ability to prioritize and multi-task in a busy environment. Experience with nonprofit arts organizations a plus, but not necessary. The right candidate would be ready to learn, could start immediately and should be able to commit up to 15 hours per week in our office on Mondays and Tuesdays. This position reports directly to the Managing Director. If interested and qualified, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with resume and cover letter.
Be the first person to welcome our patrons to the theater each night! Box office responsibilities include selling tickets, answering the phone, and handling walk-in inquiries. Members of the box office staff should have a sunny disposition to greet and help patrons with any and all questions or concerns. The theater can get busy, so it is important that you are able to handle stress under pressure. Basic computer and iPad skills are also necessary to sell tickets. If interested, please email email@example.com with resume and cover letter.
ImprovBoston offers a wide variety of drinks and snacks at Gag's Bar (that's the name of the bar) and we are always looking for friendly people to serve them. Responsibilities include set up of the theater and lobby before shows as well as serving drinks and snacks to patrons. Applicants should be motivated individuals who will maintain and stock the bar during shows. If interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with resume and cover letter.
Behind the scenes of a show can be just as important as what goes on on stage. ImprovBoston is always seeking motivated individuals to join our Tech Crew managing lights and sound during our shows. An interest in comedy and attention to detail is crucial in responding to light and sound cues during shows. Some previous tech experience is helpful, but not required. If interested, please email email@example.com with resume and cover letter.
ImprovBoston presents: THE INTERN INFO RUN-DOWN:
So… you want to be an intern. Here are some things you should know!
We offer internships in exchange for ImprovBoston Comedy School (IBCS) classes. Our most common internships are Floaters & Office interns, described below.
1. Floater Interns
Many of our IBCS interns become “Floaters,” which entails working with our Front of House crew one show-night per week for 8 weeks. These shifts are Wednesday-Friday evenings.
As a Floater, you are essentially assistant to the House Manager & our nightly staff, helping out with tasks as needed. Often including setting up & breaking down the theaters for shows, greeting & assisting patrons.
Being a Floater is a great way to be in the hub of the IB community and to get to know many members of the amazing ImprovBoston family. For these positions, we look for friendly, high-energy applicants with “Can-Do” attitudes.
2. Office Interns
We also have IBCS interns work two (2) 4hr-days per week for 8 weeks. These shifts are generally Tuesday/Thursday or Wednesday/Friday 1-5PM.
Our office interns have the chance to get a feel for what working behind the scenes at a comedy theater is like. You will help our small, but mighty, office staff with general office administrative tasks, inventory organization, light handy-work (like vacuuming or putting duct tape on a box. You know, handy-work!), and other weekly tasks.
Some of our rockstar interns have transitioned into a more specialized field (photography, graphic design, sales, etc.), but only after one session “working the office.”
*** ImprovBoston expects interns looking to work in exchange for an IBCS class to begin their internship about 2 weeks prior to the start of the session in which they wish to enroll.
*** Resume & interview will be required.
