Theatre Operations Intern
The Davenport Theatre is looking for qualified candidates to join our internship program. The ideal candidate will be available beginning of January to end of May, but start and end dates are flexible. A stipend is paid upon successful completion of the Internship Program, and a monthly subway pass is provided. If approved by the university, college credit can be received for this experience.
The Theatre Operations Intern works with both the Davenport Theatre House Manager and Operations Manager and will gain a “nuts and bolts” experience of managing an Off-Broadway theater. Responsibilities include general office support, answering phones, communicating with employees, patrons, and clients, providing support in preparing the theater for new productions as needed, and assisting house management during performances. The Theatre Operations Intern must have strong customer service and communication skills, solid problem-solving skills, and must be attentive to detail. Technical skills and comfort with basic tools is a plus. Opportunities will be available to attend readings, seminars, and other office events. Applicants should be eager to learn, able to take initiative, and ready to jump into any project.
Applications are online. No phone calls/emails, please.
Positions available: One part-time or full time. Some weekend and evening availability preferred.
