The Carpetbag Theatre, Inc. (CBT), founded in 1969 and chartered in 1970, is a professional, multi-generational ensemble company dedicated to the production of new works. Our mission is to give artistic voice to the issues and dreams of people who have been silenced by racism, classism, sexism, ageism, homophobia and other forms of oppression. CBT serves communities by returning their stories to them with honesty, dignity, and concern for the aesthetic of that particular community, helping culturally specific communities to re-define how they organize.

The company works in partnership with other community artists, activists, cultural workers, storytellers, leaders and people who are simply concerned, creating original works through collaboration in a style based in storytelling and song.

The Executive Support Manager will provide high level support to the Executive/Artistic Director. Responsibilities include project management/coordination, a public facing external relations role and administrative duties. Keen organization skills and the ability to work both independently and collaboratively are vital. The position will also include basic clerical duties such as meeting planning, report production, database management, and travel arrangements. The ideal candidate will enjoy working in a creative, ensemble environment with a focus on mission-driven, community impact.
