Open Positions

We are happy to hear from individuals who are interested internships or volunteering with PROTOTYPE.   


PROTOTYPE is seeking interns to assist with all areas of the festival.

Festival interns will play an active role in production, company management, house management, and festival operations. Duties will include being present at theater load-ins and strikes as well as technical rehearsals, and occasionally may include providing assistance in running shows during performance. Interns will act as festival representatives in the front of house, and be involved with artist relations and hospitality. Interns will also assist with basic office and festival administration duties, such as running errands, generating or updating paperwork, etc.

Working directly under the festival’s Associate Producer, interns will have a chance to work closely with the festival’s Producers and Production staff. With seven productions taking place in five different venues, this internship will offer a great opportunity for hands-on experience in all areas of theatrical production and management. The intern experience may be tailored to suit an individual’s interests and strengths based on availability and experience.

The festival internship will run from January 2 – January 22, with the potential for some work in December, based on availability. This internship is unpaid, but PROTOTYPE will provide an unlimited metro card for the month and meals when no break is given.

Please send résumé and letter of interest to internships@prototypefestival.org.
