Guest Artists

Portland Stage hires professional artists both locally and out-of-town to direct plays, design sets, lights, costumes, and sound for our productions.

Artists are hired on a show-by-show basis. Portland Stage does accept portfolios and resumes from local designers and members of United Scenic Artists; please submit electronically via This Google Form. Portland Stage does not accept unsolicited material from actors at this time.

Professionals that are local to Maine should also submit to the Maine Theater Collective’s Offstage Database. That website can be accessed here. Please note, that most theaters in Maine are looking for local professionals and are not likely to be able to provide housing; only fill out the Maine Theater Collective form if you live local to Maine.
