Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati

So you love the arts and want to do more than be in the audience? That’s musical theatre to our ears.

Theatre takes a village.

For every actor on stage, there is a dedicated team of designers, crew members, teaching artists, volunteers, and administrators working behind the scenes to deliver the compelling theatre and meaningful educational programs our community deserves.

These passionate individuals collectively make up our Ensemble by contributing their time and talents and our work would simply not exist without their collaborative efforts.

If you’re someone who is enthusiastic about theatre and wants to work with us, we invite you to become part of our team. There are a variety of ways you can get more involved with our organization—from volunteer opportunities to our annual playwriting competition to auditions and jobs.
