The Ensemble Studio Theatre, New York, NY

Fall and Spring internships are designed to give participants experience in the production process and also a general understanding of how a professional theater company functions. Each intern is assigned to a specific “track” to give practical experience in their personal area of focus. All interns also attend a weekly Lab, tailored to the interests of the group, which can include lectures and Master Classes with esteemed EST members and which culminates in a showcase, developed and produced by the interns as an ensemble company.

Fall and Spring Internship Tracks:

Technical: Work with the Producer, Designers, Technical Directors, Production Managers and Stage Management on EST readings, workshops and productions. Experience with lighting, sound and/or carpentry is recommended. Evening availability and an interest in serving on running crew are essential to this track.

Producing: Work with the Season Producer and EST Staff to manage the EST readings, workshops and productions. Work directly on the productions (including setting-up and maintaining rehearsals and production spaces, building and organizing props, and assisting during tech) and interact with artists involved. Stage Management experience is a plus.

Marketing and Development: Work with Executive Director and Marketing Manager. Development responsibilities include processing and acknowledging donations, gathering grant materials and communicating with donors. Marketing responsibilities include maintaining and updating the website, creating mass e-blasts, and assisting with video production and editing. An interest in theater management and administration is a plus.

Literary: Work with Literary Manager to receive and process script submissions, read and critique scripts, and maintain the submission database.  A+ writing skills and experience in play development or playwriting are essential.
