The Dramaturgy/Literary internship at CTC offers the opportunity to observe the field of new play development, literary management and dramaturgical research, script analysis and production support. It also provides an opportunity to participate in myriad activities associated with the functioning of a dramaturgy/literary department of a professional theatre.
The duties of each intern vary, but a general list of potential learning projects includes: reading and evaluating new scripts; corresponding with playwrights, agents and literary managers, conducting library and archival research; dramatic text analysis, editing and compiling different editions of a script; and observing new play development workshops and rehearsals.
The ideal candidate should have strong writing and communication skills, a strong background in literature (especially drama), and experience in research. Candidates should also have a special interest in the process of transforming a written play into theatrical productions. Word processing skills and basic computer competence are helpful. We are looking for someone who has attained their undergraduate degree and is expecting to pursue dramaturgy and/or new play development at the graduate or early-career level. Candidates must be able to commit to 10-20 hours a week for 6-12 months.
We are not offering any fall/winter/spring Dramaturgy Literary internships at this time.
