Description
Page 73 Productions (www.page73.org), a non-profit theater company dedicated to developing and producing the works of early-career playwrights, seeks a part-time, season-long intern to support all of our initiatives during the 2017-2018 season. Ideal candidates will be available September 5 through May 31. Those available only in the fall may apply, but preference will be given to applicants with the ability to make a season-long commitment. 

Page 73 seeks an intern who will work closely to provide support for Page 73’s core leadership staff; organize and perform office management tasks; and help maintain organizational systems for Page 73’s office. Responsibilities will include database use, event support, and research, as well as general administrative duties. The intern will also support Page 73’s full range of artistic programming.

During the period of this internship, Page 73 will be producing two world or New York premiere productions; working with our 2017 and 2018 P73 Playwriting Fellows and our 2017 and 2018 Interstate 73 writers groups; presenting several one-day and 29-hour readings of plays by playwrights in our community; and hosting our annual spring benefit fundraiser and several other special events.

Candidates must be self-starters who are able to work independently on a variety of projects. Proficiency with Microsoft Office required. Familiarity with Adobe Creative Suite, WordPress, and OvationTix (or other similar ticketing platform) a plus.

Hours are flexible but candidates must be available for approximately 15-20 hours over the course of each week during business hours, which are generally 10am - 6pm, Monday through Friday. Ideally the intern would be available from time to time to assist with nighttime events. Page 73’s office is located at 80 Hanson Place in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, near the Atlantic Terminal and BAM. A $50 weekly stipend for expenses will be provided. 

This is an excellent opportunity for a student or recent graduate with an interest in learning about new play development and production as well as all aspects of running a non-profit theatre company. Page 73 is happy to work with academic institutions to structure an internship that will earn course credit. Page 73 is committed to developing new talent for the theatre and looks forward to creating opportunities for this new member of our team to grow as a theatre professional.

Page 73 Productions is New York City’s theater company specializing in creating opportunities for talented early-career playwrights to receive their first full-scale professional New York or world premieres. Founded in 1997, Page 73 has established itself Off Broadway with consistently high quality and impactful productions and readings, garnering high profile reviews, extended runs and recognition with six Drama Desk Award nominations and two OBIE Awards. The playwrights we have developed and produced have gone on to win the MacArthur Genius Award, the Guggenheim, and the Pulitzer Prize, among other significant recognitions, and many have gone on to forge successful playwriting careers. Alumni include Quiara Alegría Hudes, Samuel D. Hunter, Heidi Schreck, Clare Barron, and Dan LeFranc, among many others.

Interested candidates should submit a cover letter and resume to jobs@page73.org. Successful candidates will be contacted by the end of July to schedule an interview.
