The York Theatre Company is seeking dedicated current or recently graduated university students to engage in a hands-on, educational internship experience. The York Theatre, which is dedicated to its mission to the production of new musicals, strives to give new theatre professionals the same first stepping-stone. Interns will be placed in an area of primary focus to develop their skills and will be paired with a mentor in that department. Interns will also periodically rotate between other areas of concentration and help perform general office duties/errands to be exposed to all aspects of working for a professional not-for-profit theatre company.

  • Fall (Approximately September – December)
  • Spring (Approximately January – May)
  • Summer (Approximately June – August)

The term start and finish dates are slightly flexible, please scroll down for more information.

Please note: while Covid-19 restrictions are in place, the internship program may be primarily virtual. Of course, everything is subject to change as we follow guidelines from the State and CDC. Our primary concern is the safety of our interns, our staff and patrons. Thank you for your understanding.

Commitment Requirements:

The commitment is a minimum of one term/semester and we ask that each intern be available three days a week and put in a minimum of 15-20 hours each week. (Specific days/times are flexible with supervisor. The term start and finish dates are also slightly flexible). Our office operates on a 10am to 6pm schedule, but interns will also be asked to assist with and attend periodic evening/weekend performances and events. We ask that you have relative flexibility in your schedule. The internship is unpaid, but academic credit is available. We provide a shared Metrocard for all office related errands — candidates must be willing and able to take all forms of NYC public transportation. Interns will receive tickets to all York Theatre productions, participate in roundtable events of discussion with industry professionals, and other unique opportunities.

Application submissions should include a minimum one page cover letter explaining what you hope to gain out of an internship with The York Theatre Company and a one page resume giving an overview of your experience. Please include in your cover letter which term you are available and focus you would like to pursue. If you are unsure or are interested in more than one focus, please include that in your cover letter. Feel free to include any writing samples or portfolio examples you feel may be relevant to your application.

"Being a summer intern at The York Theatre Company was an amazing opportunity. I was able to make some great connections and gained a new perspective on what it takes to work and succeed at a theatre company. I'm so thankful I was a part of The York and look forward to continuing to be involved in some way." -- Emma V.


"Once beginning my journey at the York in October of 2020, I tried to make the best of my experience and learn regardless of the Pandemic. My most substantial task at the York was to edit the Show (+Tell!) Series that celebrates productions from York’s past and reunites the cast and creative teams. It not only was a pleasure to discover these musicals that I was not previously familiar with, but more-so to be witnessing the conversations between theater historians and creators analyzing their works and choices. Regardless of never having met my co-workers in person during my internship, it truly felt like I had been in a room with them -- be-it a virtual reality. Zoom, text, and phone calls allowed us to connect each day on a professional and personal level." -- Nick G.
