 Description:
     As the national service organization for the not-for-profit
     professional theatre, TCG offers services in line with our
     mission: to strengthen, nurture, and promote the professional
     not-for-profit American theatre. TCG serves theatre artists and
     organizations by recognizing and encouraging activism, artistry,
     advocacy, and global citizenship. We provide professional
     development for theatre leaders, research and data analysis for
     the field, advocacy on the federal level, as well as the
     publication of American Theatre magazine, ARTSEARCH, and works
     from our award-winning book program.

     Our internships are offered year-round and are generally held in
     the fall, spring, and summer semesters. There is no housing or

     benefits and perks. Some of these include: the unique experience
     of interacting with the national theatre community, networking
     opportunities at our field-wide convenings, practical experience
     in a variety of professional disciplines, free copies of American
     Theatre magazine, free books and plays, and discount ticket
     offers.
