PROTOTYPE January Intern
Term: January 2–24, 2020
PROTOTYPE: Opera | Theatre | Now, the annual Festival of global opera-theatre and music-theatre works, co-produced by HERE and Beth Morrison Projects, is seeking interns to assist with all areas of this world-renowned Festival.
PROTOTYPE interns play an active role in production, marketing, event planning, development, company management, house management, box office and membership, and Festival operations. Duties range from assisting with marketing and media initiatives, producing responsibilities, being present at technical rehearsals, theater load-ins and strikes, house and company management/artist relations responsibilities, cultivation event planning, donor stewardship/relations, and could include serving as run crew during performances. Interns may also assist with basic office and Festival administration duties, such as running errands, generating or updating paperwork, etc.
PROTOTYPE interns will work directly under the Festival producers, Festival production staff, or Festival development manager. With six events taking place in five different venues, this internship offers a great opportunity for hands-on experience in all areas of performing arts production and management. The intern experience is tailored to suit an individual’s interests and strengths based on availability and experience.
The PROTOTYPE internship takes place from January 2 – January 24. An extended internship starting December 1 and ending on January 24 is also available which often involves working directly under a specific member of the PROTOTYPE staff for the duration. Please list your preference and availability in your message.
This internship is unpaid, but PROTOTYPE will provide an unlimited NYC MetroCard.
