Apprenticeships and Internships 

Now in its 51st year of continuous operation, Magic Theatre is dedicated to creative risk: we cultivate new plays, playwrights, and audiences and produce bold, entertaining, and ideologically robust plays that ask substantive questions about, and reflect the rich diversity of, the world in which we live. Magic believes that demonstrating faith in a writer’s vision by providing a safe, rigorous, and innovative artistic home, where a full body of work can be imagined, developed, and produced, allows writers to thrive. We believe that, by adding vanguard voices to the canon and expanding access to new theater-goers, we ensure the future vibrancy of the American theatre.

These apprenticeships and internships will begin in mid-August 2018 and continue through June 2019. (Magic also offers summer internships June through August).

OVERVIEW

A Magic Theatre apprenticeship is for you if you are planning a career in theatre and have an interest in new play development and production.

Magic Theatre apprentices and interns participate in every aspect of operating a mid-sized theatre company, from full participation in staff meetings and strategy discussions to sharing in everyday administrative and production tasks, fund-raising, and script reading, contributing to both short- and long-term organizational endeavors. Apprentices receive hands-on training and experience while working side-by-side with top theatre professionals.
The apprenticeship will be a rich, career-building experience, which will strengthen your craft, your resume and your network of professional colleagues. All Magic apprentices have the opportunity to forge unique relationships with the playwrights we support in residence.

Full-season apprentices and interns will work primarily in their own departments and participate in all-staff events, and may be asked to work on special projects with other departments.
 Summer interns will work with every department. While Magic is dark in the summer, every department has demands that must be met so that we continue to operate smoothly and are ready for the coming season.

For both full-season and summer positions, we are looking for people who are full team players and thrive in a collaborative environment. All apprenticeships and internships at Magic Theatre offer the possibility of future transition to paid positions. To date, five apprentices/interns have moved into staff positions and seven have been hired to helm artistic workshops and readings. General Requirements Magic Theatre full-season apprenticeships and internships will begin in August 2018 (specific date to be determined) and end by June 30, 2019.

These are full-time positions that occasionally require substantial weekend and evening time, especially during productions. Some flexibility may be possible (to be arranged with the apprentice’s or intern’s department head). Applicants for all positions must be at least 18 years old. Social networking, IT, internet, and video skills are strong assets. For all positions, good writing skills and computer competence (word processing and spreadsheets) are required. Apprentices and interns must be able to thrive in a work environment that is characterized by changing priorities and demands. 

Apprentices and interns receive a small stipend ($250 per month for 10 months for apprentices, $125 per month for interns). Opportunities to augment income with evening and weekend front-of-house assignments may be arranged for those with financial need if work assignments permit.
Housing is not provided nor arranged. Magic will pursue supplemental financial support for superior applicants who would otherwise be unable to pursue these positions, but support cannot be guaranteed.

Specific requirements for individual apprenticeships are indicated in the descriptions of those positions.
