Clubbed Thumb is currently seeking production interns for its 23rd Annual Summerworks Festival. The festival features three fully produced new American plays, as well as a number of ancillary activities and events. Rehearsals begin as early as April 15th and performances run approximately May 19th – July 1st at The Wild Project in New York City’s East Village.
We are seeking two production interns per show to assist throughout rehearsals, tech and performances, all festival load-in and strike days, and to work various front of house shifts. It is an extremely hands-on, holistic experience; the ideal candidate is eager and enthusiastic to make the most of the two months. No technical experience is required, but a basic understanding of theater (and the type of work that Clubbed Thumb produces) is preferred. This is an unpaid internship and housing is not offered.
Apply now by filling out the form below. Thank you for your interest!
