Make professional contacts and learn all aspects of producing theater in NYC by interning at Women’s Project Theater. As the nation's oldest and largest company dedicated to producing and promoting theater created by women, Women's Project is the magnetic force field for innovative artists and adventurous theater-goers from around the world. Women’s Project was founded in 1978 by Julia Miles to address the significant under-representation of women in the American theater. Since then, countless artists have launched their careers and achieved substantial recognition at WP. Under the leadership of Julie Crosby since 2006, WP’s mission remains absolutely vital. Only 20% of professionally produced plays in the nation have women playwrights and directors at the helm. And frustratingly, the statistics precipitously decline at the largest theaters. Women’s Project is proud to give women theater artists the opportunities they so richly deserve, but rarely receive.
Interns in our busy office assist in a variety of areas, including reading and cataloguing scripts, researching donor prospects, liaising with artists, and helping with audience development, box office reporting and marketing. Ideal candidates will have a command of MS Word and Excel, a desire to learn, and a sense of humor.
