theatre Internship Program
The A.R.T./New York Theatre Internship Program connects member theatre organizations with interns who care about the theatre and are deeply interested in learning how theatre is made. Theatre organizations can often benefit from having additional 'hands on deck' but don't always have the funds to support a full or part time staff position. Students are often looking to gain work experience in the theatre and find difficulty getting access or making sense of the industry. A.R.T./New York acts as a bridge to connect the two and therefore facilitate the making of great theatre in New York City. There are two components of the Internship Program: the Theatre Intern Database and the Theatre Internship Fair.
Theatre Intern Database
As part of the registration process for the Theatre Internship Fair, A.R.T./New York collects student information for the Theatre Intern Database. This members-only resource is an archive of intern resumes that is searchable by school, graduation year, location, preferred semester, and internship focus (artistic, development, general management, marketing, and production). Member theatres can access the database at any time to facilitate their intern search.
If you are currently a member, please click below to access the database. If you are not currently a member, you can gain access to the database by applying for membership or renewing your membership.

The 2015 A.R.T./New York Theatre Internship Fair, in partnership with American Theatre Wing, is an opportunity for students interested in a life in the theatre to meet and greet with over 60 nonprofit theatre companies in New York City. All theatre companies present at the fair are seeking interns to support their work in fields such as production, marketing, fundraising, general management, and more. While companies are offering internships for the upcoming Summer and Fall semesters, students can also find more immediate placement.
Theaters that would like to have a table at the fair can register here.
The 2015 Theatre Internship Fair is generously sponsored by the Michael Tuch Foundation and Le Moyne College.
