Manhattan Theatre Club (MTC), a Tony Award-winning nonprofit theatre dedicated to the production of contemporary plays and musicals, seeks a full time Artistic Production Associate. For nearly fifty years, MTC has been the creative and artistic home for America’s most gifted theatrical artists, producing works of the highest quality by American and international playwrights. We are strongly committed to producing work that is made by, and tells the stories of, a wide range of voices from all walks of life and to making that work accessible to all audiences including those that have historically lacked access to the arts and cultural sector. MTC produces a season of plays annually in Broadway’s restored Samuel J. Friedman Theatre on West 47th Street and off Broadway at the historic NY City Center complex on West 55th Street.

The Artistic Production Associate is directly supervised by the Artistic Producer, but regularly collaborates with all members of the artistic staff.

The Artistic Production Associate will be the main artistic producer for the Beyond the Stage Series; assist on line producing select readings, workshops and full productions; evaluate work for production; provide support for new artistic initiatives; and be responsible for outreach and relationship building.

A passion for new work and sharing that work with as wide an audience as possible is essential. Excellent interpersonal, organizational, written and verbal communication skills, absolute attention to detail and the ability to be proactive are also required. A strong candidate will be adept both at collaborating with a team and managing projects independently and a good sense of humor and the ability to thrive while working under pressure in a fast-paced environment will be invaluable.

Previous office or industry experience is required. Comprehensive knowledge of MS Word, Excel and Outlook is a plus.

This is a full-time, salaried position paying in the low to mid $40K range with full benefits package including: group health insurance with options for spousal, family and/or domestic partner coverage, voluntary dental coverage, basic life and long term disability insurance, paid time off and optional 401(K) and flex savings plans for healthcare, dependent care and commuting expenses.

To Apply: Forward resume and cover letter to HR Director, via email to: [email protected] with your name and “Artistic Production Associate” in the subject (MS Word, Adobe PDF or plain-text format only).
