NYTW offers internship opportunities in all departments. Our internships are geared toward college students, graduate students, and recent graduates interested in careers in arts administration. We are looking for driven, self-directed candidates who are interested in learning from theatre professionals and contributing to a vibrant downtown community of artists.
NYTW is committed to providing interns with structured and substantive experiential learning. Each intern is assigned to a specific department and staff supervisor. Interns occasionally have the opportunity to observe or work on projects for other departments, which gives interns a taste of multiple aspects of NYTW and its operations, and we encourage interns with varied interests to explore them.
The entire company of NYTW interns gathers every month for a lunchtime or evening mentoring event with an invited guest from the NYTW staff or theatre community to discuss their work and share ideas. In the past, interns have met with artists such as Elizabeth Marvel, Alex Timbers, Leigh Silverman, Donyale Werle, Rinde Eckert, Young Jean Lee, Kathleen Chalfant, Jackie Sibblies Drury, Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, Michael Greif and many others.
- Internships are part-time volunteer opportunities and typically last three to nine months.
- Interns receive a monthly unlimited MetroCard, tickets to NYTW productions, monthly mentoring events, plus academic
credit if applicable.
- Interns volunteer a minimum of 3 full days per week, with occasional extra hours for assisting with productions and events. Regular office hours are 10am-6pm.
