Founder and Artistic Director, Stephen Burdman, began his career with great internship opportunities. With that in mind, New York Classical's internship program is designed  to give important hands-on training and experience to college students and emerging artists in the professional theatre. Positions are available in Stage Management, Costume/Wardrobe, and Production with the opportunity to attend 4-5 Master Classes taught by professional artists in such areas as Voice & Speech, Directing, Casting and Shakespeare’s Verse. Interns are paid a transportation stipend and earn Equity Membership Candidacy points. For each production we hire 7-10 interns.

My experience with New York Classical Theatre was warm and welcoming.
The company taught me what is necessary to succeed in NYC.
I felt key to the outcome of each night’s performance—new friends and connections abound! The New York Classical Internship is a must for those interested in the business.
