There are currently no active openings, but check back soon! Opportunities for early-career theater practitioners will be announced here.

The Bernard B. Jacobs Internship Program

New Dramatists no longer offers an unpaid internship program, but we do periodically seek a small number of early-career theater practitioners to serve as seasonal part-time Playwrights Lab Assistants each year. Please check this page in the summer for open positions, and email Tyler Christie, Playwrights' Lab Associate Director, with any questions:

The Bernard B. Jacobs Internship Program was named in memory of the late President of the Shubert Organization, who discovered and mentored many talented theatre people-- young and old-- during his lifetime. This program at New Dramatists offered a unique opportunity for emerging theatre artists and managers to learn about artist support and the operations of a non-profit arts service organization in New York City. As essential members of the New Dramatists team, the interns supported our community of resident playwrights and their individual creative processes, alongside our dedicated staff.

The New Dramatists internship provided a full spectrum of experiences, community, and exposure to new skills that served as a foundation for a career in the theater. Our interns took an active role in the administrative and creative processes that make New Dramatists possible. They served as liaisons for people seeking out our resident playwrights’ work, took on research projects, stage managed the playwrights’ readings and workshops, helped create our monthly communications, and helped the staff implement our special events. We extend our deepest thanks to all of the former interns who made  immeasurable contributions to the organization.
