Shubert Organization’s summer internship will return for summer 2024

The program focuses on non-performance careers in the Broadway industry.

The Shubert Organization, which owns and operates 17 of Broadway’s 41 theaters, has announced the return of its internship program. The paid program will offer an introduction to Broadway careers that occur offstage. The program will run from July 8 through Aug. 16.

The internship will offer exposure to aspects of theater administration and operations. Specific internships will be offered in the following areas: Broadway Inbound, theater management, events, ticketing operations, ticketing technologies and tourism marketing, all of which are based in New York City. An internship in information technology systems will be based out of offices in Glen Rock, New Jersey.

One of the internship’s goals is to provide accessible pathways to non-performance careers on Broadway for BIPOC and historically marginalized students.

“The overwhelmingly positive feedback we’ve received from past applicants and interns alike is that they value the opportunity to be exposed to and experience these professions first-hand as they consider the next steps in their theatrical careers,” said Tammie Ward, senior director of theater operations and co-chair of Shubert’s education and training committee, in a statement. “For students of color, these pathways to training have historically been non-existent.”

Candidates who are either graduating high school seniors or first-year college students enrolled in an accredited college program are eligible to apply. While not required, a theater major is encouraged. The program is open to all students, regardless of race or ethnicity.
