Historical Interpreter/Actor

The Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum is currently holding auditions for MALE andĀ FEMALE historical interpreters/actors. Full-time and part-time positions are available.

The Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum is dedicated to reliving the historic night of the Boston Tea Party. Our museum includes a blend of live historical performance with technology and multimedia presentations including the award-winning documentary, Let It Begin Here. We are also the proud home of the Robinson Half-Chest, one of only two known surviving tea chests from the Boston Tea Party of 1773. The Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum is a floating nautical environment, featuring two fully-restored 18th century sailing vessels, the ship Eleanor and the brig Beaver.

As a member of our cast, you will serve as a Host to our guests, dress in historical costume, and portray a historical character while leading guests through the museum experience. Through your intensive training, you will become an expert on the Boston Tea Party, the historical significance of this event and its impact on the American Colonies. Besides the daily experience, you will take part in the many productions in the Creative Department of the BTPSM, including but not limited to: Education Program, Huzzah! Tavern Nights, Revelry on Griffin’s Wharf, etc.

Each actor will perform multiple roles on site. Friendly/outgoing dispositions expected. Must be comfortable working with and leading large groups of people. Must be able to work in all weather scenarios as you WILL be outside for part of your day. Prior performance experience and an interest in revolutionary war era history strongly preferred.
