Bay Street Theater offers the opportunity for interns to experience first-hand the inner workings of a dynamic, professional theater, garnering invaluable work skills in the various aspects of technical and artistic production and arts administration. By actively working with trade professionals throughout the rigorously scheduled rehearsal and production process, interns directly explore their own suitability to the demands and rewards of a life in the theater. Former interns have gone on to successful careers at organizations including The Alley Theatre, NETworks Productions, Signature Theatre, Lincoln Center, Primary Stages, Manhattan Theatre Club, and Williamstown Theatre Festival, among many more.
Bay Street Theater is a not-for-profit theater located on the beautiful Long Wharf, in Sag Harbor, NY. The summertime mainstage season features the mounting of 3-4 full theatrical productions, weekly comedy events and musical concerts, outdoor community performances, arts education workshops and camps for children, the annual Gala fundraiser, and many more events and shows.
Through ongoing managerial support and feedback, as well as professional development activities and workshops, our internship program strives to provide the next generation of technical theater, actors, and non-profit leaders the skills and knowledge necessary to advance to careers in their chosen fields. While working in various production capacities throughout the season, interns focus their internship in particular fields of interest, as well as assist designers and/or department heads and participate backstage as running crew during performances.
Bay Street offers a friendly and fun, yet focused environment where individuals come to learn and build their careers. As such, we look for individuals who demonstrate maturity and professionalism, a “can-do” attitude where no task is too small (or big), a strong respect for the collaborative nature of theater, with the ability to work both independently and as part of a team, and a willingness to take ownership of responsibilities and projects
