Long story short, I've been employed at the shop I currently work at since the end of October. It's ok, but won't serve much purpose other than a reference when I'm gone. I'm also getting steadily fed up with certain critical aspects of the job. I also volunteer at my local theatre, and may be able to get employment over December there. It would be for a higher wage, I enjoy it alot more and it fits more closer with the kind of career path I want to pursue.
However, my current contract runs until mid Jan, and I want to leave on a good note if I get offered the other job and accept.
Any advice woul be greatly appreciated.

Explain the terms of your current contract to your potential employer. They may be willing to work with you.
Example: J was working for Walmart, and had been there long enough to qualify for a shareholder's check for about $700, provided he was there on January 31st. He had applied for a position with a different retail establishment in October, and they'd filled the position. When that person didn't pan out, they called him shortly after Christmas. When he explained that yes, the extra $1 an hour would be nice, but he didn't want to walk away from $700, they held the position for him on the condition that he came in for at least one or two hours a week for training.
