General Manager

Green Thumb Theatre is a force within the field of theatre for young audiences, not only in British Columbia, but across the country and throughout the world. Green Thumb Theatre creates, produces, and tours plays that explore social issues relevant to the lives of children, youth and young adults. We provide theatre that celebrates the language and stories of today’s generation and culture to stimulate empathy, debate and critical thinking. 

Reporting to the Board of Directors, the General Manager is responsible for the successful leadership and management of the organization according to the strategic direction set by the Board of Directors. Such direction is informed by the plans and vision of the Artistic Director, the policies established by the Board of Directors, and the resources available. The General Manager works collaboratively with other Green Thumb staff members: with the Artistic Director (annual program and associated operating plan and hiring of all permanent employees), the Tour & Company Manager (tour promotion activities, establishment of school and venue based sales targets and coordination of venue-based tour contracting), the Production & Facilities Manager (show production and year round facility and other asset management budgets), the Development & Communications Coordinator (company marketing collateral, social media, identity and development of the annual funding plan), the Education Liaison (relationship building with key school contacts and budgeting of educational programs), the Accountant (regular financial reports for the purposes of internal and external reporting), and other contract workers and consultants, as required. 

The General Manager is employed by the Board of Directors and acts as an advocate and representative of Green Thumb Theatre to arts professionals, various stakeholders and the community at large. Evaluation of service and contract negotiation are also conducted by the Board of Directors, through the Board’s General Manager Search Committee. 


reen Thumb Theatre is actively seeking to dismantle inequity in the theatre sector, and to furthering principles of access, inclusion, and equity in our work. We strongly encourage applications from BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and other communities facing systemic marginalization, and welcome members of those communities to self-identify as they feel comfortable. All Green Thumb staff, contractors and volunteers will be asked to sign off on Green Thumb’s Anti-Oppression and Anti-Harassment Policy.
