    PROGRAMS — INTERNSHIPS


    New Perspectives Theatre works with high school and college students so they can learn first-hand about the technical and administrative aspects of the not-for-profit theatre community through structured internships. The program places an emphasis on recruiting minority interns and helps to improve their communication, organizational and conceptual skills, and provide a mentoring experience for young people who may lack positive relationships with adults. Undergraduate and graduate students from Hunter College, NYU, Antioch College, Rutgers University, Philadelphia's University of the Arts, and Savannah College of Art & Design have participated in the program. 10th-12th graders from the School for the Physical City, Bronx Lab School and the Settlement College Readiness Program have also been interns in the past.

    We also work with adult learners interested in expanding their skills and experience. To date we have had visiting professionals from Canada, Tazmania, France and Germany.  For more information about our Internship program, please feel free to contact us.

    MEET SOPHIE BYRNE AND ANNA SIMONE!

    We have been extremely lucky to have two wonderful interns from the Discovery Internships program for the last several summer,  July 2015 was no exception!

    Sophie Byrne (L) is a high school student living in Switzerland, when she is not boarding at Phillips Exeter Academy. She has spent the past two years working on campus as part of Fisher Theater’s technical crew and is excited to be discovering more about the inner workings of the theater industry as an intern at NPTC. In her spare time, Sophie enjoys engaging as a member of Active Minds and volunteering in a second grade classroom at Main Street School in Exeter.

    Anna Simone (R) hails from Wayne, New Jersey and is thrilled to be interning in a field she has such a passion for. Theatre has always been a huge part of Anna's life. Her earliest memories include standing on stage in dance recitals, class plays, and summer productions. Now, she is a rising senior at Wayne Valley High School where she participates in the fall dramas, spring musicals, Future Business Leaders of America Club, Peer Leaders Association, the National Honors Society, among other nationally-recognized organizations.
