Nu Sass Productions is seeking energetic and civic-minded people to volunteer for its Board of Directors. Nu Sass is a non-profit theater company that seeks to provide opportunities in the arts for women and underrepresented communities, particularly in roles that have been traditionally occupied by men. Prior professional or volunteer non-profit experience is preferred, but not required.
The primary responsibilities of the board are organizational governance, community outreach, and fundraising. The board meets a minimum of four (4) times per year. Board members typically serve a two-year term on a calendar year basis; in this instance, we are looking for board members for the remainder of calendar year 2021 and 2022. Board members are typically asked to donate or raise funds for Nu Sass on an annual "give or get" basis, but we are willing to work with prospective board members given the current economic climate and their ability to contribute.
Don't have prior board experience? That's OK. We're looking for curious people willing to learn the ins and outs of leading in the arts, and we believe very strongly in ongoing education and enrichment. We're committed to providing a safe and inclusive place where people can create art and hone their craft. Join us to help govern an organization nominated for "Outstanding Emerging Theater Company" at the 2017 Helen Hayes Awards.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About NU SASS PRODUCTIONS
4023 5TH ST NW, WASHINGTON, DC 20011, US
Nu Sass Productions strives to encourage women in all aspects of theater, especially in those roles traditionally dominated by men. Nu Sass seeks to offer women opportunities to expand the roles they take on in the theater and try new things. Nu Sass explores how putting female actors into roles originally written for men can change the overall experience for the audience. Above all, Nu Sass aims to create engaging, thought-provoking art while being a responsible local and global citizen.
Nu Sass Productions was founded by Aubri O’Connor and Emily Todd in 2009 with the mission of encouraging women in all aspects of theater, especially those roles traditionally dominated by men. Nu Sass' first production was a gender swapped version of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead during the 2009 Capital Fringe Festival.
Nu Sass was nominated for the John Aniello Award for Outstanding Emerging Theatre Company at the 2017 Helen Hayes Award, and Mary Myers was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Play (Helen Production) for the Nu Sass' staging of Marx in Soho at the 2018 ceremony.
