What is the High School Internship Program?
The High School Internship Program is a separate program from The Broadway League Internship Program. The program, in partnership with the New York City Department of Education, aims to engage NYC public high school students from diverse backgrounds by introducing them to non-performance career opportunities in the theatre, including, but not limited to: general management, press, marketing, producing, and technical supervision. This five-day shadowing opportunity allows participants to view occupations in the theatre industry as viable career paths that they may pursue in college. There is no application process for the High School Internship Program, as students are nominated by teachers.
