TARGET MARGIN THEATER is an OBIE Award-winning theater company newly based in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. Since 1991 we have produced innovative adaptations of classic texts, lesser-known works, and new plays inspired by existing sources. We challenge audiences with our plays, energetically expand the possibilities of live performance, and engage our community at all levels through partnerships and programs.

We are seeking 2018 winter / spring interns to join us for the creation and presentation of major productions exploring the classic tales of The Thousand and One Nights. Our internships provide rigorous hands-on experience in theater production, management, marketing / development and artistic creation. We recently moved into a 7,400 square foot space in Sunset Park, Brooklyn (232 52nd Street btwn 2nd & 3rd ave) that is home to new work, artists, and community programs. Still being a small company with limited resources, we offer a travel reimbursement, mentorship, priceless experience, and tickets to all of our shows. We’re looking for someone to join us 3 – 4 days a week for approximately 20 – 25 hours.
