About the Program
Ars Nova is looking for smart, motivated self-starters with strong organizational and communication skills, excellent attention to detail and the ability to multi-task. Ars Nova interns are integral in the day-to-day operations of the business office and spring lineup. You’ll get an all-access pass to see everything we produce for free – including our little monthly variety show we like to call Showgasm. Interns also get to participate in weekly seminars with each department @ Ars Nova, as well as special seminars with members of the larger New York theater community, all in addition to happy hour mixers to get to know the vibrant extended network of our Ars Nova family.
