The Emelin Theatre, located in Mamaroneck, New York, and founded in 1972, is the oldest continuously operating performing arts center in Westchester County. Its mission is to bring the best in live performing arts to Westchester and other nearby communities and to promote a cultural life that entertains, educates and invigorates. The Emelin, well-known for its high-quality and affordable programs, is one of the few performing arts venues in this region which offers a broad mix of entertainment appealing to all ages and tastes and attracts diverse audiences throughout Westchester County and beyond. Programming for the 2015-16 Season includes 100 performances of music, dance, film, theater, comedy, and family programs.

The Emelin Theatre’s internship program offers a unique opportunity for individuals to gain practical experience in the operations and administration of a not-for-profit performing arts center. Interns will collaborate with the Emelin’s staff and leadership as an integral part of the organization, supporting the Emelin’s daily activities while gaining hands-on insight and knowledge in various areas of the company’s work.

Internships are available on a semester-by-semester basis and the Emelin will be happy to work with your educational institution to ensure you receive any available academic credit. Interns will generally work 15-20 hours weekly, with some flexibility based on institutional requirements, and may begin immediately. Educational internships are unpaid, but $50 per week is available to reimburse interns for travel and other associated costs.

Internship candidates should be detail oriented and possess a genuine interest in the arts, strong communication skills, a collaborative spirit, and a sense of humor.

Hours are flexible, but interns should expect to incur some weekend hours at the theater.
