Theater Arts seeks a creative, experienced director to lead cast and crew on its world premiere of Sue Ology and The (Possibly) Haunted House, a Theater for Young Audiences musical that mixes comedy and chills as well as science and the (possibly) supernatural.

In short, the creative team behind ThinkBIG! intends to grow the company and the resumes of all who join the team.
