    Well, hello!

    I am the theater director at Marist School in Atlanta, GA.  We have an opening for a full-time Technical Director, so I thought I'd put this info in front of this amazing group in hopes of finding our next great team member.  Our current TD is following his partner to a new career opportunity in the northeast.

    Here's the basic job description:

Marist theater is home to three upper school productions, one middle school production, and two dance concerts. The technical director will also interact with facilities and campus ministry providing support for all-school events.

    This is a full-time (teacher schedule) position, with full benefits and competitive salary.
