Mosaic Theater Company of DC is an equal opportunity
employer and welcomes applicants who understand and embrace the
Mosaic’s mission to make transformational and socially-relevant
art. Mosaic Theater is committed to providing a safe environment

believe that these communities must be centered in the work we do.
