Program Description:

The Broadway League, founded in 1930, is the national trade association for the Broadway Industry. The League’s 700-plus members include theatre owners and operators, producers, presenters, and general managers who present in nearly 200 markets in North America. Each year, League members bring Broadway to nearly 30 million people in New York and on tour across the U.S. and Canada.

In the Spring of 2011, The Broadway League formed a Diversity and Inclusion Committee specifically tasked with addressing the lack of diversity in the industry’s workforce and offices. Several programs have resulted from this initiative, all of which aim to provide professional development opportunities for deserving applicants.

The Broadway League’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee welcomes applications for its third cycle of Fellowships, designed to give hands-on experience working on a Broadway or Touring Broadway production. Applicants from diverse backgrounds that are underrepresented in the commercial theatre industry are encouraged to apply.
Fellows will be placed with and employed by a Member of the Broadway League (The Kimmel Center) for 30 hours of work per week for 26 consecutive weeks, and will be compensated at a rate of $14.50 per hour. The Member will treat the Fellow as their employee during this time, and as such will comply with all necessary withholding tax and similar statutory obligations, including FICA, unemployment insurance, and workers compensation. Applicants must be eligible to work in the United States, be available to work 30 hours per week for 26 weeks, and fully commit to completing the program.

In this inaugural year of partnership with The Broadway League’s Diversity and Inclusion Fellowship at the Kimmel Center, the Fellow will be introduced to the many facets of the performing arts process with an emphasis on marketing touring Broadway Series, focusing on audience research, understanding and identifying sales trends, planning schedules, developing ideas, working with programmers and presenters, fulfilling commitments, and planning various communication strategies. Fellows will be given the responsibilities of supporting the advertising, promotions, e-commerce, creative, programming, administrative and planning sector of the Kimmel Center.
