About the Program
The Paul A. Kaplan Theatre Management Program is an intensive internship that provides a unique opportunity to learn about producing not-for-profit theatre both on and off-Broadway. The internship is designed to be a springboard to full-time employment. To that end, interns are assigned projects and responsibilities that are vital to the day-to-day running of the company. Additionally, interns’ relationships with their supervisor ensure that they are not only gaining valuable skills but also receiving support and feedback. MTC seeks applications that have completed at least one previous administrative internship or have equivalent experience working in an office setting, and are ready for the next step towards a career in professional theatre.
