About the Program
The New Group, one of New York’s leading off-Broadway theaters, is proud to offer a rigorous and competitive internship program in order to develop and empower the next wave of exceptional theater professionals. The New Group extends its mentoring to those whose love of the arts includes the inner workings of the theater through experiences in administration and production. The New Group seeks diverse individuals with an affinity for theater arts and administration. Each internship provides candidates unique insight into the inner workings of one New York City’s premier off-Broadway theater companies in an intimate, openhearted environment. Our interns are integral to the functioning and continued success of our theater and as such, interns are expected to take on real responsibilities and take initiative in their time with us. The New Group interns are invited to participate in staff meetings and special events, which can include (depending on current production schedule) first rehearsals, opening and closing nights, talkbacks, and fundraising events, such as the Gala.
