|Theatre Without Boundaries!|
New Perspectives Theatre works with high school and college students so they can learn first-hand about the technical and administrative aspects of the not-for-profit theatre community through structured internships. The program places an emphasis on recruiting minority interns and helps to improve their communication, organizational and conceptual skills, and provide a mentoring experience for young people who may lack positive relationships with adults. Undergraduate and graduate students from Hunter College, NYU, Antioch College, Rutgers University, Philadelphia's University of the Arts, and Savannah College of Art & Design have participated in the program. 10th-12th graders from the School for the Physical City, Bronx Lab School and the Settlement College Readiness Program have also been interns in the past.
We also work with adult learners interested in expanding their skills and experience. To date we have had visiting professionals from Canada, Tazmania, France and Germany. For more information about our Internship program, please feel free to contact us.

MEET THIS SUMMER'S INTERNS!
Hazel Bonilla is very grateful to be an intern at New Perspectives Theatre Company. As an entering undergraduate at CUNY Brooklyn College, there is absolutely nothing more she loves than theater arts. She became involved in acting in Chelsea Vocational High School through the afterschool program, Epic Theater Ensemble, where she wrote and performed in contemporary Shakespeare plays. After gaining an understanding of theater direction, stage and costume design, sound and lighting, as an alumna of this theater company, Hazel’s curiosity to discover the aspect of theater behind the scenes is endless. She has Engage Scholars Program and New Perspectives Theatre Company to thank for this opportunity.
Lizzy Gurdus is thrilled to be working as an intern at New Perspectives Theatre Company! As a rising senior at Oyster Bay High School in Long Island, NY, she has discovered her passion for theatre through her participation in various productions as well as her experience directing, writing, and stage managing works at the Summer High School Programs at Columbia University in 2011. Through learning about theatre business and management, she is very excited to expand her horizons and witness the magic of theatre unfold firsthand. She thanks Discovery Internships and New Perspectives Theatre Company for providing her with this amazing experience!
Maya Moskowitz is very excited to be spending her summer interning at the New Perspectives Theatre Company! As a rising senior drama major at LaGuardia High School of Performing Arts, she is enjoying the opportunity to learn about theatre production, playwriting, and how to collaborate on a performance piece. Maya is able to explore her interests of both theatre and social action, as she takes part in the Women’s Work Short Play Festival as a production assistant, and participates in the directors’ rehearsal processes. She is thrilled to have found a theatre company that focuses on performance and activism, and plans to continue to stay involved for future projects!
