The Playwrights Horizons Theatrical Fellowship Program offers excellent practical experience in training for a career in the arts and affords an opportunity to learn from some of the top professionals in the American theater. We are currently accepting applications for a 2019/20 General Management Fellowship.
The General Management Fellow will work closely with the Company Manager and General Management team on all the daily aspects of running a non-profit off-Broadway theater including drafting contracts; tracking production expenses; monitoring and reporting on ticket sales, availability, and house seats; assisting with theater rental coordination; reporting weekly to unions, prepping for Board meetings, and more. This is a part-time opportunity; the General Management Fellow will join the Playwrights staff two days per week.
This fellowship will begin as soon as possible, and may continue through the spring or winter, pending availability of the right candidate and needs of the department.
Because our Fellows are fully integrated in the day-to-day life of the organization, a fellowship at Playwrights Horizons offers significantly marketable experience in one’s chosen field. We are proud of the fact that many alumni have gone on to become some of the most active directors, writers, composers, and arts administrators in the country. In addition, many current staff members are former Fellows, including our artistic director, Tim Sanford.
Playwrights Horizons is pleased to offer a weekly stipend of $100 to help offset the cost of housing and other living expenses. All fellows also receive an unlimited monthly MetroCard. Other benefits include support for additional professional development, as well as numerous free or discounted tickets to Broadway and Off-Broadway theaters.
How to Apply
Applicants may submit a single PDF including a cover letter, resume, and contact information for three references. Materials will be accepted on a rolling basis until the fellowship has been awarded.
