Administration Manager

Peterborough Players

The Peterborough Players is looking for a highly organized, dynamic new member of our team.



Peterborough Players is a New Hampshire cultural treasure; a fully professional Equity theatre in an unexpected setting -- a historic barn, three miles outside of downtown Peterborough.  Founded in 1933, the theatre offers a traditional summer season June - September and a three-play winter season, augmented in the fall and spring by opera and theatre on screen including The Met: Live in HD opera series and plays from London's National Theatre.  For nine decades the Players has produced professional theatre at a level of quality that has gained it a significant national reputation.

While the theatre has not been able to produce live shows since March 2020, there is lots of hard work being done now for the future.   We are planning theatre for 2021 that is innovative, inclusive, welcoming, and expresses our gratitude.  And, of course, we will produce it in a way that is safe for all involved.

The successful candidate will work closely with the Managing Director, Advancement Director and administrative staff on office management and customer service.  A primary responsibility will be helping the Players administrative processes run smoothly and professionally.  The Administration Manager will be the primary manager of the donor database, will assist the Advancement Director in other areas of development and fundraising, and will create financial reports and make bookkeeping entries in the Players’ accounting program.  Additionally, the Administration Manager will answer phones, take ticket reservations, and help with events.  The position will be full time salaried (with some event coverage on nights and weekends).  Peterborough Players is an equal opportunity employer and committed to diversity and inclusion.
