The Old Globe has initiated a search for a Director of Finance to join the theatre’s staff and assist our efforts to advance our institution to its next level of artistic and organizational achievement.
Now in its 82nd year, the Tony Award winning Old Globe is a recognized leader among American regional theatres. Known for producing a broad range of work from Shakespeare and the classical repertoire to world premiere musicals and plays, the Globe annually produces 15 productions on its three stages, plus a “Globe for All” touring program that performs in community venues throughout San Diego County.
Over the years The Globe has served as an artistic home to many of the most acclaimed actors, designers, directors, and playwrights working in the theatre. Dozens of Globe-originated productions have gone on to play at theatres across the country, and more than twenty-five Globe productions have gone on to Broadway, off-Broadway, or London’s West End productions. These shows include such well known hits as Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, The Full Monty, Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder, Bright Star, and most recently the current Broadway hit, Meteor Shower.
Having completed a $75 million capital campaign that resulted in significant improvements to its facilities and surrounding campus, The Old Globe offers artists and audiences one of the most spectacular and versatile theatre complexes in America. Centrally located in downtown San Diego’s gorgeous Balboa Park, the performance venues of the Globe’s Conrad Prebys Theatre Center include the 580-seat Old Globe Theatre, the 250-seat Sheryl and Harvey White arena theatre, and the 605-seat outdoor Lowell Davies Festival Theatre. In addition to its public performance spaces, the complex includes on-site administrative offices, rehearsal halls, and craft shops.
Nearby are two other facilities owned by the Globe: a 22-unit apartment building which hosts out-of-town artists, and the Globe’s Tech Center, a 43,000 square-foot state-of-the-art production facility.
Each year more than 250,000 ticket buyers attend Globe productions, and tens of thousands participate in the theatre’s arts engagement programs and outreach services. With an annual operating budget approaching $24 million the Globe is San Diego’s largest arts institution and is its leading arts employer. That size of budget places it among the largest regional theatres in the country.
The arrival of Erna Vinci Viterbi Artistic Director Barry Edelstein in 2012 and more recently Timothy J. Shields as Managing Director in 2017 has marked a period of growth and success. The Globe has enjoyed record breaking attendance and wide acclaim for the quality and reach of its work.
The Old Globe’s Board and staff share a passionate commitment to serving audiences, the community, and theatre professionals, at the local, regional, and national level as expressed in the company’s mission statement:
To preserve, strengthen, and advance American theatre by: Creating theatrical experiences of the highest professional standards; Producing and presenting works of exceptional merit, designed to reach current and future audiences; Ensuring diversity and balance in programming; Providing an environment for the growth and education of theatre professionals, audiences and the community at large.
A core focus of the Globe’s mission is to make theatre matter. We work to have that be true for more people, more often. We do this by expanding and strengthening the connection between the theatre and its neighbors in and around San Diego. To that end, in recent years The Globe created an Arts Engagement department, which works to give individuals and families the chance to experience theatre - often for the first time, and to participate in theatre-making activities that engage San Diegans with every level of the institution. The Globe's Arts Engagement work deepens community ties and increases access to the theatre through a combination of new and existing initiatives that are experiential, participatory, and aimed at multi-generational audiences. The Globe also serves the professional community as the home of the Old Globe and University of San Diego Shiley Graduate Theatre Program, a nationally renowned two-year MFA actor training program.
