MCC Theater


About the Organization
MCC Theater was founded in 1986 as Manhattan Class Company, then a collective of young actors, writers and directors eager to take a leadership role in their own artistic development. Initial peer-based “classes” led to showcases and eventually to the kinds of full-scale productions that have made MCC Theater one of New York’s leading off-Broadway theater companies. The philosophy and aesthetic on which MCC Theater was founded continues to fuel our work in three main areas of focus: annual productions, development of new work, and education and outreach programs.

About the Program
MCC Theater interns gain a broad perspective on the day-to-day work environment of a busy Off-Broadway theater, as well as a detailed understanding of how their specific department operates. We do our best to work with our interns, to develop their individual strengths and to give them interesting work that will help them grow. MCC Theater internships are unpaid. Part time and full time internships are available to college students and recent college graduates.
