The Playwrights Horizons Theatrical Fellowship Program provides hands-on learning opportunities for the next generation of leaders in the performing arts industry. This program offers excellent practical experience and training for a career in arts administration or stage management, and an opportunity to collaborate closely with and learn from Playwrights staff members and professionals in the industry. We are proud that many program alumni have gone on to become some of the most active directors, writers, composers, and administrators in the country, and in addition, many former fellows have joined the Playwrights staff.

The fellowships that are currently offered are:

  • Stage Management
  • Artistic/Literary
  • Casting
  • Marketing
  • General Management

Fellows will…

  • Be invited to attend a series of seminars that include talks with seasoned professionals in the industry
  • Have access to a professional development stipend
  • Be invited to participate in Opening Nights, Community Events, and other staff events
  • Receive theater tickets and tickets to PH’s shows

I can point to my time at Playwrights Horizons as the critical step in my career as a playwright, artistically and professionally.

—Sarah DeLappe, Literary Fellow 2012/13, author of The Wolves (2017 Pulitzer Prize Finalist for Drama)
