Hey Theatre folks. Wanted to pass this along. The company I work for, All For Kidz, produces a year round, international, school assembly and are looking for some part-time employees to call schools and book the show. It's a great company with a fantastic message. Hours are flexible. Work from home. Pay is good.

It's an ideal job if you need to supplement your theatre work and are burned out waiting tables. Below is the job description with all the details.

All the best,

Paul Stetler

-----------------

JOIN OUR TEAM!
All for KIDZ (AFK) is looking for part-time Sales Executives interested in working 20 hours a week during our peak selling season (August-October) to book "The NED Show", America's most popular school assembly. The ideal candidate is organized and self-motivated to work remotely. You will be responsible for calling schools within a designated territory to articulate our message, explain our resources and schedule The NED Show assembly to visit their school.

ABOUT US
The NED Show is the industry leader in providing character education assemblies. Now in our 25th year of operation, we employ more than 60 people who share a passion for character education in elementary schools. 20 of these employees are Account Executives who book the NED assemblies within assigned territories. The rest of our team is made up of full-time assembly performers and administrative/support staff. Together, we provide a positive message to more than two million children annually. Our Pay-It-Forward funding model contributes to our broad reach, as it allows us to provide our assemblies to schools without requiring a fee.

WE WILL PROVIDE:
Training: We provide an extensive 2-week training at our Lynnwood, WA office. You will then make calls from Lynnwood for an
additional 2-4 weeks until you are successful at which time you may elect to work from the Lynnwood office or your home calling
office. You will gain ongoing knowledge and perspective from our established sales team members in our Lynnwood, Jacksonville,
and Charleston offices as you work together to meet our weekly sales goals.

Equipment: Computer, headset, VPN to our server which provides access to our CRM database.

YOU WILL PROVIDE:
A private office (background noise must be minimal) and high speed internet access.

SCHEDULE & HOURS:
This work-at-home position is dependent on demand throughout the year. Our peak season is from early August through October
and will require 20 hours a week, 4 hours a day Monday-Friday. Some part-time positions may be available year round and others
periodically through the balance of the year.

COMPENSATION:
Base hourly wage: $15-20 DOE
Per school booking bonus: $20
Monthly bonus: Potential of earning an additional bonus based on total number of schools/kids booked.

COMPANY CONNECTION TIME:
Every Friday morning at 10:00 am, we have a company-wide remote video conference with employees from all offices.
We acknowledge the weeks’ accomplishments to reinforce that we are making a difference and helping kids to be champions at
school and in life. Occasionally we will ask you to attend this meeting in person when we have luncheon celebrations so that
you will keep connections strong with our team.

________________________________________________________________________
 
Ouroboros Shadow Pictures, based in Oakland, CA, is one of the foremost touring shadow-theater companies in the United States.  Their specialized methods of shadow-cinema set their work apart from that of other shadow groups.  This summer, they are proud to premiere their newest work at the Ballard Underground in Downtown Seattle.   In town for one night only, this intimate, not-to-be-missed performance promises to be unlike anything you have seen.  As it sweeps with sound and visual intrigue, this emotional tone-poem reaches for the corners of memory by speaking to the desperation of everyone’s “too late”. 
THE HISTORY OF WAKING UP will show at 6pm and 9pm on Sunday July 26th.
 
The story follows two people through their nightmares and fantasies, painting a haunting picture of solitude, memory and parallel realities.  Set after a tragic incident in the lives of the characters, this story explores their perceptions of time and their struggles with loneliness.   When the line between the real and the imagined begins to disintegrate, the collective journey of both characters becomes clear.  Important note: this is not a puppet show and may not be appropriate for children under 13.  In the spirit of Ingmar Bergman, the show offers character perspectives that are both undesirable and necessary.
 
THE HISTORY OF WAKING UP is written and performed by Alisa Javits and Adam Lipsky.  A visual artist and musician respectfully, the two founded Ouroboros Shadow Pictures in 2013.  Alisa is the primary designer, builder and performer of the sculptural shadow art, which is used as props in the productions; Adam is responsible for the music and sound elements of the productions.  The company has toured frequently and grown rapidly since its founding.  Their ongoing efforts are aimed at creating evocative narratives with original music and immersing visual environments.  Behind the giant freestanding shadow screen, sound and cinematography are created live, charging each performance with the energy of improvisation. The audience is brought in and surrounded by the full-room expanse of the shadow world.

The show runs 50 minutes without an intermission.
Tickets are sold at the door.  $10 Students/Seniors, $12 Adults.

GREEN WHALES - NW Regional premiere dark comedy, by Lia Romeo
Karen is a middle-aged woman with a chromosomal disorder that makes her look like she's in her early teens. As a result, she has trouble meeting men - until her alcoholic sister Joanna sets her up with a suspected pedophile. The real problem is, she likes him. Meanwhile Joanna is navigating her own relationship troubles with a boyfriend who won't commit. In this dark comedy, two sisters search for love and decide just how much they're willing to settle for.
Starring: Rachel Anne Godbe, Clayton Michael, Leslie Wisdom, Craig Peterson
Assistant Director: Haley Bates

STILL LIFE - World premiere dark play, Barbara Blumenthal-Ehrlich
Three people become inextricably linked after a series of subway bombings shut down their city. There's Lydia, whose daughter Jackie hasn't returned after leaving for the subway that day. There's Donald, her son-in-law who is paralyzed by grief. Lastly, there's a celebrated photographer who makes Lydia her first human subject by taking daily polaroids of her phone chats with Jackie during lunch. Still Life offers a beautiful and humorous look at the ways in which we move on in the face of tragedy.

Assistant Director: Benjamin Benne
