Connectivity Director, Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company

Basic Job Function: Ignite the “explosive engagement” between theatre artists and the community that powers Woolly’s mission statement—by working to expand the Woolly family, deepen the audience experience in our theatre, and link our productions to the civic discourse that happens every day in the nation’s capital.

Specific Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Identify local stakeholders, institutions, and events that may resonate with each individual play
  • Facilitate discussions between artists, staff, Board, and audience members to develop a shared vision for:
    • An “entry point” for each play (“What is the conversation this play wants to have with our audience and community?”)
    • A “designed audience” for each play (“Who needs to be in the audience to bring energy and meaning to that conversation?”)
    • A “total audience experience” for each play (“What can we do to accent, extend, and deepen the experience of each audience member?”)
