MCC Theater interns gain a broad perspective on the day-to-day work environment of a non-profit Off-Broadway theater company, as well as a detailed understanding of how their specific department operates. We work with our interns to develop their individual strengths and to give them interesting work that will help them grow.
MCC Theater internships are unpaid, but alternative benefits include:
- Two complimentary tickets to each MCC production, plus access to first preview, staff rate tickets and standby seating.
- Access to creative team meet & greets, first preview performance and party, and volunteer opportunities at the Miscast gala
- Opportunities to attend all open readings for plays under consideration at MCC Theater
- Regular sit downs with education staff

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I stay for more than one semester?
Internships at MCC can be as short as four months but can also last a full season. If you decide you would like to stay beyond a four-month session, your direct supervisor and the Education Outreach Coordinator will conduct a mid-session review to decide if staying on is beneficial for all involved.
I am interested in more than one internship. What do I do?
Feel free to list the departments you’re interested in order of your priorities within your cover letter and in the subject line of your application email. While you cannot intern for two departments at once, there is often crossover where we will need “all hands on deck,” and interns will thus have the opportunity to interact with other departments. If it is beneficial to all involved, you can always reapply after completing one session to work in another department for the next session.
What if I am in school or have another job?
The staff at MCC Theater understand that you have to pay the bills and get degrees, so we are happy to coordinate schedules that ideally work for both the department and the intern. All interns work part-time so we are often able to accommodate school/ work schedules, as long as you work it out with your internship supervisor.
Can I get course credit if I am still in school?
Yes, interns have received course credit for their work at MCC Theater. This is to be arranged individually by the interns.
