Application for Artistic Director Theatre

Dear Hiring Manager,

As an energetic Artistic Director with 8 years of experience overseeing all aspects of theater and music festival productions, I apply with enthusiasm for this opportunity.

I am currently the Creative Director at Halliwell Theater in Ohio, where I steer the full artistic production lifecycle from selecting performances and setting production schedules to recruiting performers and managing budgets. We currently have 8 incredible productions running or in rehearsal, with an emphasis on contemporary American plays that wow modern audiences. 

During my time at Halliwell, I have pivoted the theater from a 6-figure deficit to an annual profit of $187,500. I have achieved this by leveraging my senior arts & culture leadership expertise and strategic talents to completely overhaul day-to-day operations, introduce exciting works into our repertoire, and collaborate with key stakeholders to develop a robust 5-year strategy. I also introduced a youth theater program to create opportunities for talented young performers, and have bolstered our social media presence through engaging content and competitions. 

This role draws upon my 3 years as Artistic Director of the Granat Rock Music Festival, where I juggled everything from artistic planning, finances, and fundraising to overseeing hospitality for this annual 3-day, 40,000 attendee event. 

As Halliwell Theater is now at the forefront of artistic excellence in the region, I am eager to apply my talents to turning around another promising cultural organization that would artistically and financially benefit from my strategic vision and strong leadership skills. 

Please find attached my résumé for your consideration. Thank you very much for your time. I look forward to hearing from you regarding next steps.

Yours sincerely,

Marc Parker
