summer internship program

A highlight of The Town Hall Educational Outreach Program is the Summer Internship Program which provides high school students with experience in all aspects of the performing arts. The Summer Internship Program is a competitive six week paid school-to-career program that places high school students from participating high schools in performing art venues throughout New York City. Student interns acquire marketable skills in the interrelated fields of stagecraft and arts administration. These include lighting and set design, stage and house management, research and editing, and financial management of arts organizations. Job and life skills are taught hand in hand, enabling interns to pursue higher education and careers in stagecraft and arts administration. Past interns have found jobs in the arts industry as a result of their internship.

Participating arts organizations include:
Annabella Gonzalez Dance Theater
The Drilling Company/Shakespeare in the Parking Lot
Gina Gibney Dance Center
OPERA America, Inc.
The Pearl Theatre Company
The Puerto Rican Traveling Theater Company
Theater for the New City

Intern candidates will be identified and vetted for our consideration through specific Career Technical Education schools that are involved with the Work Based Learning program of the New York City Department of Education.
