Company Management, Technical, & Administrative Internships – The John Drew Theater at Guild Hall

WHO: The John Drew Theater at Guild Hall

SEEKING: Company Managment, Technical, and Administrative Interns

Guild Hall’s 2011 Summer Season in East Hampton, NY will feature a three week run of Colin Quinn Long Story Short direct from Broadway in June, followed by a mixture of one night concerts, kid shows, outdoor and indoor films, cabaret, dance, celebrity staged readings, classical music, pop music, and more throughout July and August (including Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers performing An Evening of Bluegrass and Banjo, Celebrity Autobiography, Martha Graham Dance Company, Roseanne Cash, Cheyenne Jackson, Liz Callaway, Alec Baldwin hosting documentary film screenings with the Hamptons International Film Festival, and more.) Our season is very fast paced with a different show almost every night and interns should have dedication, good organizational skills, attention to detail, ability to multitask, and a sense of humor. No pay but college credit, tons of experience in the industry, and incredible networking opportunities are available. Interns should be prepared to work at least 30-40 hours a week, and night and weekend availability is essential.
