In 2016, MTC’s Internship Program was named one of the best in the country by Backstage magazine – the only New York theatre to make the list!

How to Apply Button

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 applicants 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.

Theatres such as:

  • Arena Stage

See what past interns have to say about their experience working at MTC:

“The best part of working at MTC is the people. Everyone here appreciates and includes the interns in the daily activities of running the organization and trusts that we are smart and capable people. Having worked with other organizations previously, I can say that I truly appreciate the extent to which the staff here seems to make our experience educational and worthwhile.”

“The intern seminars were always wonderful, and seeing theatre every week was FANTASTIC! I learned so much about so many theatre companies from hearing them in seminars and then getting to go to the theatre and see the type of work they produce.”

“I always felt like I had real responsibilities that were vital to MTC’s well-being and that went beyond typical mundane intern tasks like copying, filing, archiving, etc.”

“The internship definitely helped to make a career in the arts a tangible thing for me.”

“Every staff member in my office seemed equally invested in my professional development.”
