What is TeatroStageFest?

TeatroStageFest is a cultural, educational, and artistic celebration that spotlights the best of Latino and Iberian theater from New York, Latin America, the Caribbean, and Spain. Produced by The Latino International Theater Festival of New York Inc. (LITF/NY), our second annual Festival took place June 2-15, 2008 and presented “Great Theater for All Audiences!”

TeatroStageFest 2008 featured acclaimed local and international stage productions, a concert series, comedy, artist panels, and a celebrated playwriting competition for high school students, among other events. In August 2008, LITFNY launched TeatroStageFest Outdoors!, a new initiative that seeks to bring celebrated TeatroStageFest productions into local communities in partnership with City Parks Foundation. In total, the second annual TeatroStageFest featured 17 different events, nearly 100 local and international artists at 10 venues, 37 performances and congregated over 7,500 spectators.

TeatroStageFest is supported by Mayor Bloomberg’s NYC Latin Media and Entertainment Commission and NYC & Company, and is funded by corporate, government leaders and philanthropy leaders. Among our many supporters are Founding Sponsor Time Warner, Principal Media Sponsors The New York Times, El Diario/LA PRENSA and Univision 41, and American Airlines (Official Airline). Other sponsors include: JPMorgan Chase, the New York City Council, the New York State Council on the Arts, Robert Sterling Clark Foundation, and American Express, among many others.

Where is TeatroStageFest?

The annual TeatroStageFest is held in 10 different venues throughout Manhattan, Queens and The Bronx. The TeatroStageFest office is located at 142 E. 27th Street, Suite 1A, between Lexington and Third Avenues in Manhattan.

When is TeatroStageFest?

The third edition of TeatroStageFest is currently scheduled for April 27th -May 10th, 2009. Interns that are accepted for the Fall 2008 semester may be invited to work through the Spring ’09 semester and the actual festival. We also welcome students seeking internships for the Spring ’09 semester only.

How can I get involved?

Become a TeatroStageFest Intern! Be a part of making theater history. By joining a small, but fast-growing non-profit organization, you will get real responsibility and gain real skills. Interns will work directly with Executive Director Susana Tubert and other senior staff. We have three different internship positions available. They can be tailored to the interests and strengths of each intern. The are:

1. Public Relations and Marketing Internship: The PR/Marketing Intern will work closely with both the Executive Director and the Marketing Director of the Festival to ensure correct placement of the Festival in the media as well as assist with audience development. As the Public Relations and Marketing Assistant, the Intern will field media requests, create and manage clipping file, assist at press events, cultivation events, and festival openings, assist in finalizing marketing and advertising deliverables (such as print ads, street banners, flyers and postcards), help determine and implement creative marketing strategies for audience development, seek out and enhance relationships with the New York City Hispanic community, assist in executing special on-site sponsor activities and promotions, and any other task relating to Marketing and PR. Fluency in Spanish is a plus, as some materials will need to be translated into/from Spanish; position will be based at the TeatroStageFest office located at 142 E. 27th Street, Suite 1A, between Lexington and Third Avenues, and will require significant additional field work.

2. Development Internship: While specialized staff secures cash funding for the Festival, the Development Intern will spearhead the in-kind fundraising efforts, by researching, reaching out to, and securing hotels, limo service, van rental companies, restaurants, select media, etc. The Development Intern must be personable and a passionate advocate of TeatroStageFest. He/She also must have excellent writing skills to customize individual proposals and follow up letters to the various companies. In addition, the Development Intern will assist in the planning, promotion, and staging of Festival events and functions, and will assist the Marketing Director in the creation and publishing of the TeatroStageFest Monthly Newsletter.

3. Programming Internship: A highlight of the Festival will be a series of educational panels and workshops featuring prestigious Latino playwrights, designers, actors, opera singers, producers, and scholars. The panels will be hosted by Instituto Cervantes, a Spanish government organization charged with highlighting the Spanish and Latin American cultural experience in the U.S. and the City University of New York (CUNY). The Programming Intern will work directly with the Executive Director to identify, invite, and coordinate the panels and workshops. Coordination may include arranging housing and transportation for out-of-town panelists. The Programming Intern will also serve as a liaison between the Latino International Theater Festival of New York, Inc., and Young Playwrights, Inc., our partner in the young playwrights year-round educational programming and annual competition.

Both Development Intern and Programming Intern will also serve as Assistant to the Executive Director. Wherever possible, Interns will be invited to attend meetings and meet participating artists.
