The marketing intern will work closely with a recently expanded marketing team to implement promotional campaigns, manage press lists and show listings, and develop engaging content (including video creation) for social media.
The intern will get actively involved in working with our artist (1000+ each year!), our shows (15 a week!), and the entire theater on all levels of promotion, publicity, and events.

This is an extremely valuable position that will teach you skills that you can take to many other future positions. Specific duties will include working with the marketing team to creatively strategize promotional efforts for our commissions and work-in-progress shows; content curation and community management of social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & Youtube); proofreading promotional materials; assisting implementation of community partnerships; planning content and facilitating special events; and strengthening press outreach (listings, contacts, and archival materials).
