Long Wharf seeks Next Generation of Theater Directors

Long Wharf Theatre is accepting applications for its 2009/2010 directing internships.

These are production-based opportunities for early-career theatre artists to gain experience working in a professional theatre environment. Interns will act as assistant to the director, duties to be determined with individual directors. Commitment is for the length of the production rehearsal process and previews (often four to five weeks, six days a week, 6-8 hours a day). This is an unpaid position.

Applicants should have access to local housing and transportation. Several internships are currently available for the season, and will be assigned at the discretion of the theatre.

Interested individuals should contact Eric Ting, associate artistic director, at 203-772-8267, or email resume and letter of interest to: eric.ting@longwharf.org.

LONG WHARF THEATRE (Gordon Edelstein, Artistic Director, Ray Cullom, Managing Director), in its 45th season, is recognized as a leader in American theatre, producing fresh and imaginative revivals of classics and modern plays, rediscoveries of neglected works and a variety of world and American premieres. More than 30 Long Wharf Theatre productions have transferred virtually intact to Broadway or Off-Broadway, some of which include Durango by Julia Cho, the Pulitzer Prize-winning plays Wit by Margaret Edson, The Shadow Box by Michael Cristofer and The Gin Game by D.L. Coburn. Last season’s production of The Glass Menagerie will move to New York in the spring of 2010. The theatre is an incubator of new works, including last season’s Coming Home by Athol Fugard and A Civil War Christmas by Paula Vogel. Long Wharf Theatre has received New York Drama Critics Awards, Obie Awards, the Margo Jefferson Award for Production of New Works, a Special Citation from the Outer Critics Circle and the Tony® Award for Outstanding Regional Theatre.
