Second Stage Theatre, New York, NY

Second Stage Theatre offers internships in both production and administration. Interns work directly with individual department heads & staff to receive practical training in administrative management or technical theatre. Interns are selected by application and interview.


Internships usually run from September to December, January to May, or June to August. We do provide flexibility in terms of start dates and hours. A minimum commitment of 15-20 hours (depending on department) or 40 hours for Stage Management per week is required. Interns also are expected to attend weekly staff meetings to increase their understanding of the organization as a whole.

We expect a willingness to work hard and high standards of performance. In return, interns are treated as members of our professional staff and receive intensive hands-on experience. We ask that all interns be reliable, conscientious and energetic.

Second Stage will assist interns to meet the credit requirements of individual schools but all arrangements for credit must be made by the intern.

Interns are evaluated in meetings with their supervisors before leaving Second Stage. These meetings provide a forum for discussion of the intern's progress, future expectations, projects, and goals.

To apply for an internship at Second Stage, please complete an application form and send it with a resume, two letters of recommendation (professional or academic), and a brief personal statement (i.e., what you expect to gain from an internship). Incomplete applications will not be considered. For more information, please email jcarroll@2st.comThis e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
