Intern Applicants

New Repertory Theatre offers Internship opportunities in the following areas:

Box Office/Front of House


Box Office Interns
 will participate in the day-to-day operation of the Box Office.  Interns will be trained on the Box Office ticketing system: OvationTix, and they will sell tickets to customers over the phone and in person at the Box Office window.  Other duties may include filing, helping with paperwork, setting up will call tickets, helping with subscription renewals, ushering, and other activities as needed. There are many shifts available for Box Office interns in the afternoons, evenings, and on weekends. Interested applicants should please contact angelicapotter@newrep.org.

Front of House Interns will help with the coordination of ushers, concessions, and House Management and will help keep our Front of House environmentally and ‘Green’ friendly.  Some Front of House work can be done during the afternoon, but a commitment to evenings and weekends is a must for Front of House Interns.  Both Box Office and Front of House interns are an important part of our customer service team, which is not only ‘the face’ of New Rep that patrons see, but also the part of New Rep that makes the patrons feel like they are a part of the New Rep family. Box Office and Front of House internships are usually combined. Interested applicants should please contact angelicapotter@newrep.org.

Education Interns at New Rep assist the Education Associate with the research for and writing of Study Guide materials for Mainstage and Classic Repertory Company productions; assisting with marketing of Classic Repertory Company; and processing data from teacher and student evaluations for both our Classic Repertory Company and our Student Matinee programs.

Interested applicants should please contact sarahmorrisette@newrep.org.

General Management

Management Interns will work directly with the General Manager on day-to-day operations of the theatre.  Duties may include working on program books, assisting with accounts payable, managing ticket donations, maintaining office supplies and upkeep, filing, researching vendor services, database projects, creating comparative spreadsheets, and other activities as needed.

Sample tasks include generating social media content, maintaining patron and press lists, distributing marketing collateral, drafting press releases, forming community connections, and brainstorming audience cultivation events.

Development (foundation, corporate, individual)

Development Interns will help develop community support for New Repertory Theatre’s programming by: conducting research on foundations and creating letters of inquiry/proposals for foundations with a strong potential for supporting our cause; contacting potential corporate supporters for advertising, sponsorships, and in-kind contributions; providing support for special events, including our Gala Fundraiser; supporting direct mail initiatives by organizing materials and volunteers to ensure the timely distribution of our annual appeals, special event invitations, and thank you letters; assisting with the maintenance of our donor database; and providing basic administrative support. Interested applicants should please contact ari@newrep.org.

New Rep’s goal is to tailor its internships to fit both the interests of the intern and the needs of the theatre, and we talk individually with each intern applicant to determine the best placement for them within the organization. As such, our interns often work with more than one department and are generally able to choose a schedule that works best for them. Interns work directly with New Rep’s professional staff, as well as with all of the actors, directors, and designers for our productions. New Rep also offers a convenient location in Watertown, which is easily accessible by car and bus.

The time frame for internships is usually Fall semester, Spring semester, the full academic year, or summer, though start and end dates can be flexible. Internships are unpaid, but credit may be available. We accept High School, College, and Graduate level interns.
