- Adult New Hampshire residents interested in working backstage or in marketing, administrative or box office positions.

New Hampshire has been a mainstay of professional theatre and theatre arts for well over a century. The New Hampshire Professional Theatre Association Auditions and Job Fair began as a way to offer opportunities for New Hampshire students interested in theatre to find jobs in their home state.
Now in its fifth year, this event is just one project to come out of the Governor’s Jobs Cabinet, which focuses on creating and identifying job opportunities statewide. It is a partnership of the New Hampshire Professional Theatre Association, Plymouth State University and the New Hampshire Department of Cultural Resources.
