Now in its 52nd year of continuous operation, Magic Theatre is dedicated to creative risk: we cultivate new plays, playwrights, and audiences and produce bold, entertaining, and ideologically robust plays that ask substantive questions about, and reflect the rich diversity of, the world in which we live. Magic believes that demonstrating faith in a writer’s vision by providing a safe, rigorous, and innovative artistic home, where a full body of work can be imagined, developed, and produced, allows writers to thrive. We believe that, by adding vanguard voices to the canon and expanding access to new theater-goers, we ensure the future vibrancy of the American theatre.
Magic Theatre currently offers:
· Apprenticeships in Artistic Direction, Literary/New Play Production, Theatre Management, and Production
· Internships in Marketing and Development, Special Events, and Educational Outreach.
These season apprenticeships and internships will begin in August 2019 and continue through June 2020.
Magic also offers a general summer internship (June through August).
A Magic Theatre apprenticeship is for you if you are planning a career in theatre and have an interest in new play development and production. Magic Theatre apprentices participate in every aspect of operating a mid-sized theatre company, from full participation in staff meetings and strategy discussions to sharing in everyday administrative and production tasks, fund-raising, and script reading, contributing to both short- and long-term organizational endeavors. Apprentices receive hands-on training and experience while working side-by-side with top theatre professionals. The apprenticeship will be a rich, career-building experience, which will strengthen your craft, your resume and your network of professional colleagues.
Apprentices and interns receive a small stipend ($250 and $125, respectively, per month). When apprentice assignments permit, there may be opportunities to augment income with evening and weekend front-of-house assignments. Housing is not provided nor arranged.
Magic Theatre is located at Fort Mason Center, San Francisco.
