Managing Director - (posted 2/25/17 by Forward Theater Company)

Forward Theater Company (FTC), a professional contemporary theater company based in Madison, Wisconsin, is launching a search for a Managing Director.

FTC was founded in 2009 and is a resident company of Overture Center for the Arts in downtown Madison. Our mission is to “create a home base for Wisconsin’s theater professionals and audiences, that expands the cultural and economic life of the greater Madison area.” A balance of bold artistic programming with shrewd financial management has allowed Forward to finish each of its seasons in the black.
Forward produces three mainstage plays each year, as well as presenting two programs supporting new work in alternating seasons. In addition, FTC allocates significant resources to outreach programming built around the themes of each of our mainstage productions. Per our mission, over 90% of our hires are Wisconsin residents.

FTC’s operations are structured around an unique organizational structure, which balances governance between their Board of Directors and an Advisory Company, consisting of area theater professionals. Open communication and transparency around their artistic and financial needs are at the core of their success.
Mainstage productions run for three weeks each. Their subscriber base is approximately 2,700 patrons, and total 2015-2016 attendance was over 14,000.

Since its founding, FTC has been led by a Producing Artistic Director, with a growing staff that now includes two full-time and four part-time employees. (Over 100 additional contracts go to artists hired to work on our productions each year.) As we move towards our tenth anniversary season in 2018-2019, we are looking to add a full-time Managing Director to start in January 2018.

Candidates for the position must have prior nonprofit leadership experience, preferably with arts organizations. Wisconsin residence (current or past) is a plus, per our mission. Ability to work in a collegial, cooperative environment is a must.
