Over the past 40 years, it has evolved from a small production company into the largest and longest-running queer theatre company in the world.

The theatre sits in the heart of Toronto’s Church-Wellesley Village, and its primary constituencies are the city’s queer and arts communities.

In addition to being a theatre, Buddies is a popular events venue with regular community and late-night events occurring year-round.

Buddies in Bad Times Theatre is committed to employment equity.

We encourage applications from queer, transgender, Indigenous, BIPOC, d/Deaf and disabled applicants.

We are currently ongoing an organizational review and transformation process and are committed to inclusive, barrier-free recruitment and selection processes and work environments Job Description Established in 1979, Buddies in Bad Times Theatre is the largest and longest-running queer theatre company in the world.

Buddies is a world leader in developing queer voices and stories for the stage.

Buddies is an organization (organism) of 30 employees, contract and hourly staff, as well as volunteers and guests.

Buddies is housed in a City-owned building, situated on Indigenous land, nestled between gritty and gentrified, queer and mainstream neighbouring cultures.

Buddies offers a year-round program that includes a full season of queer theatre, new works festivals, artist residencies, and intergenerational training and education initiatives.

Over the past two years, we have upheld our mission to support queer voices by simultaneously changing the company’s practices and policies that are complicit in racism, anti-Blackness, ableism, and other barriers to participation, and producing 15 shows/projects, supporting 500 artists, developing 20 tours and new works, and welcoming over 14 000 patrons online and in-person.

We are currently led by Daniel Carter as Managing Director, with the support of employees and contract staff, and a new Board of six community members representing a mix of theatre workers and professionals with subject matter expertise in areas such as equity, inclusion, governance and finances.

We are also working the Laboratory for Artistic Intelligence to re-imagine governance, leadership structures and organizational processes to be more adaptive to change and pro-active about community needs.

At this time, we are recruiting one or more Co-Directors to join Daniel in leading Buddies in Bad Times Theatre and facilitating the important transformations ahead.

We are looking for leader(s) with energy, organization, creative vision, community-mindedness, and incredible producing and sensemaking abilities because we live in turbulent times and have responsibilities to uphold as a queer cultural and community-oriented institution.
