Internships : Internship Opportunity

Company:Actor’s Theatre Workshop
The Actor’s Theatre Workshop’s (ATW) Internship Program provides young people with education in non-profit theatre administration, programming and production. The program is open to college undergraduates and recent graduates with a career interest in non-profit arts management, and individuals who are considering a career change into the non-profit arena. The program begins with a one-week training program in theatre operations conducted by senior staff members and enriched by reading essays written by ATW's Artistic Director and Founder Thurman E. Scott, and viewing video tape documentaries of past programs and productions. The training period allows interns to learn about ATW's core mission and creative philosophy while gaining hands on knowledge of its operations. Interns are then assigned responsibility for focus areas within theatre administration, programming and production.
Qualifications or Eligibility:
Application Requirements:You must submit a letter of interest, your resume and an internship application. In your letter, please include any talents, skills and resources that you feel could contribute to the management and vision of ATW. Prior to the interview, we require that you go to the website: and review ATW background, creative leadership and essays written by Mr. Scott that articulate the creative foundation on which ATW is built. Please schedule an appointment with an Internship Counselor in C102 or M101. You MUST have a copy of your resume the day of your scheduled appointment.
Responsibilities:In addition to their hands-on work at the theatre, interns have the opportunity to develop creatively by participating in meetings, planning sessions and discussions led by Mr. Scott. ATW's goal for the internship program is to provide motivated individuals with the requisite skills to operate and manage non-profit arts organizations, become integrated into New York's cultural community, and develop skills that will serve them in their long term careers.
