Primary Stages

Founded in 1984, Primary Stages is a not-for-profit theater company dedicated to “inspiring, supporting, and sharing the art of playwriting.” They have produced over 130 new plays and commissioned 20 new works from a diverse range of emerging and established American playwrights.


Primary Stages internships are based in the tradition of theater apprenticeships. Interns form a core of support in all areas of the company’s operations, gaining experience in their chosen department while receiving a weekly stipend of $50, free tickets to all of Primary Stages’ productions, mentorship seminars with senior staff, and free or reduced priced registration for Primary Stages ESPA classes. The internship program offers the opportunity to develop practical skills while creating realtionships with artists and administrators at one of New York City’s preeminent Off-Broadway theaters.
