Theater Managers

Tips for Entry

If you are inexperienced, look for a job in a small theater or a city to get your foot in the door.

Find an internship through your college or other theatrical program in theater management.

In addition to looking for jobs in traditional theaters, dinner theaters, regional theaters, and on Broadway, look for openings at theaters in casinos, theme parks, hotels, and other venues.

Try to find a job as an assistant theater manager in a small theater. Job turnover is higher in these types of venues and you will have a better chance of promotion in a shorter span of time.
