From internships to study abroad, Marymount Manhattan students have an opportunity to practice their craft beyond the classroom.
The Theatre Arts program is unique in offering specialized opportunities to qualified students. In addition to their fields of concentration, students receive a well-rounded theatre education which increases their marketability. Students at the junior and senior levels are encouraged to complete several internships of increasing responsibility under the guidance of a faculty mentor.
Marymount Manhattan offers excellent internships that help students gain work experience, resume credits and develop professional relationships. Theatre Arts students have interned with Jim Henson Productions Muppet Workshop, The Audio Engineering Society, Manhattan Theatre Club, HB Playwrights Foundation, Playwrights Horizons, New York Shakespeare Festival, Saturday Night Live, New Dramatists, Ensemble Studio Theatre, New York Theatre Workshop, Joyce Soho, P.S. 122, Willow Cabin Theatre Company, HERE Performance Space, Nuyorican Poets Café, Second Stage Theatre, PBS, HBO, CBS, NBC, ABC, as well as with many Broadway and Off-Broadway theatres, New York City cultural institutions, and in the offices of numerous producers, casting directors and theatrical agents.
Students in Theatre Arts have studied abroad in a variety of countries as well as through the Semester at Sea program, and in fields other than theatre. Many of our students study each year at the British American Dramatic Academy in London, and each year the department offers courses such as Performing Arts in London or Directed Study: Theatre & Drama of Ancient Greece that travel abroad to study theatre.
