The Museum of Work & Culture seeks creative performers to join our team of living history interpreters.

Living history interpreters present short, one-person plays to visiting school groups in order to immerse children in the past. Performers will appear in period dress and remain in character, sharing their story and engaging students in inquiry and response.

Tours are pre-scheduled and take place Tuesday - Saturday, typically from 9:30am - 12pm.

Interpreters will receive a script, costume, and a training from experienced interpreters.

Ideal candidates should be cheerful, curious, strong public speakers and have a knowledge or interest in local history.. Experience acting or working with children is helpful, but not required.

Interpreters will receive a 20% discount on all purchases made in the Museum Gift Shop as well as a membership to the Rhode Island Historical Society with 40 hours of volunteer service.
