Center Theatre Group's mission is to serve the diverse audiences of Los Angeles by producing and presenting theatre of the highest caliber, by nurturing new artists, by attracting new audiences, and by developing youth outreach and arts education programs. CTG successfully produces a broad variety of programming each season on its three mainstages, and has won every major award in the field for drama and fostered the development of some of the most important playwrights of our time.
The Publicity Intern will work with Center Theatre Group’s (CTG) Press Department on a project to help research, identify, evaluate, and create an updated database of CTG’s press contacts, a comprehensive list of local and national sources, including critics, journalists, editors, and producers who are integral to CTG’s press strategy. Working closely with CTG’s Head of Publicity and other members of the press team, the intern would help to research and identify media “influencers” and potentially valuable news sources not currently on CTG’s press list, assess the value and viability of current sources, and categorize the full list to make it a more strategic tool for the department’s use.
Interested candidates should possess strong written communication skills, with very good attention to detail, and the ability to be calm under pressure. The candidate should also be organized, work well as part of a team, and have basic computer literacy. Love of theatre a plus.
