NEW YORK CITY: The Shubert Organization has selected six aspiring theatre professionals for its second internship program cohort. The program, which began earlier this week and continues through Aug. 18, is designed to provide students with a general knowledge base of theatre administration and operations, and offers hands-on project involvement in preparation for the 2023-24 theatre season.
This year’s internship cohort includes current Brooklyn High School of the Arts senior Ratatosk Clarke (Theatre Management); SUNY Cortland freshman Elizabeth Fitzpatrick (Theatre Management); Boston University freshman Dylan Gozdziewski (Ticketing Technology); Pace University freshman Zion Joelle Ross (Ticketing Operations); New School freshman Zeta Sampson (Human Resources/DEI); and University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign freshman Lara Stone (Facilities Project Management).
The 2023 candidate pool included 93 applicants from 66 campuses in 12 states and three countries. The paid internships focus on specific projects over a six-week period with 20 hours of work per week, and include MetroCards, development opportunities with industry professionals, tours of Shubert theatres, and access to Broadway shows and events.
The Shubert Organization internship program was created as part of an effort to develop educational programs and pathway training for students who are Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) who are looking for careers in non-performance areas of theatre, and represents a continuation of the organization’s overall commitment to help achieve greater diversity, equity, and inclusion in the Broadway industry.
The Shubert Organization is a theatrical producing company and Broadway theatre owner. The organization and its private foundation arm are dedicated to sustaining and advancing the live performing arts in the United States.
