The Musical Theatre Factory seeks a Marketing Intern to join the staff of this exciting new organization. This position will focus on identifying and developing marketing strategies to support the artistic ventures in Musical Theatre Factory’s 2014-15 season. The Intern will gain knowledge of brand management, and the unique opportunity to create the marketing program at a new non-profit organization. The position reports to Managing Director Danny Abosch and will work in collaboration with the MTF Marketing Team and Artistic Director Shakina Nayfack, as well as our professional marketing consultants.
The Intern should be highly motivated and self-sufficient, with a passion for new musical theatre and startup organizations. As MTF is still in its first year, much of the job will be creating the position itself. Duties include developing marketing strategies, designing marketing materials for Musical Theatre Factory events (concerts, readings, workshops, classes), creating promotional videos, managing social media networks for the organization, and writing press releases.
The Musical Theatre Factory is a new volunteer-based organization dedicated to developing new musical theatre in a collaborative atmosphere free from the pressures of critical or financial success. You will regularly work with our exceptional team of artists and The Musical Theatre Advisory Board, which includes two-time Tony Award winner William Finn, Rebecca Naomi Jones, Joe Iconis, Jennifer Ashley Tepper, and more. You will get hands-on experience in the creation of new musicals, such as our current projects: JUNK, Miles and Me, The Craft, and our 4x15, Writer Showcase, and Factory Salon series.
As the Musical Theatre Factory is a small and strictly volunteer-based organization there is not a monetary stipend for this internship. You will, however, gain very valuable experience creating and leading a crucial department of an emerging theatrical organization. This is no ordinary internship--along with helping to design the marketing program, you will also work hands-on with up and coming Broadway writers and performers, running events at New York’s hottest new musical theatre venue. Every member of the Factory staff has the opportunity to work directly with the creative projects produced throughout the season.
The ideal candidate should be a recent graduate with experience in marketing, graphic design, video editing, and social media strategies, and a desire to work in non-profit theatre as a career--though other candidates are welcome to apply.
A full-time intern is preferred, but part-time requests will be considered. The hours are flexible, and we are willing to work with your schedule.
Interested candidates should e-mail a cover letter and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell us why you’re the perfect candidate for this position, and a couple marketing ideas you would possibly implement as part of the job. We will contact you once we have received your application.
