Operations Intern




New York
United States


The Public has produced shows at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park and its downtown home on Lafayette Street since the 1960s and currently produces a full season of shows year-round including classics, musicals, and new works. The building at 425 Lafayette is a landmark that was initially constructed beginning in 1850 as New York City’s first free public library, and the Delacorte has welcomed over 5 million people to its free Shakespeare in the Park performances. The Operations Department is responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of both venues as well as tracking building activity and coordinating department work around production needs. 


The Operations Intern will be exposed to the daily tasks of the Operations Department including administrative functions and systems operations. The ideal candidate has an interest in theater and previous experience in theater production or administration, experience with Microsoft Office, and is organized, detail-oriented, a good communicator, and has a positive attitude. An interest in the inner-workings of historic buildings and capital projects is a plus.


Regular hours are Monday-Friday, 10am-6pm, and part-time hours are negotiable. Regular shifts are scheduled to start in May and continue for at least 4-months.

Please send resume and cover letter to Mariana Ortiz, Operations Associate at mortiz@publictheater.org. Please note that in-person visits, calls, or emails will not be accepted.
