TESTIMONIALS

“As the Executive Intern, I was lucky to have the opportunity to interact with Ken Davenport on a daily basis and to get an inside look into the production of both Broadway and Off-Broadway shows. I’d come to work each day with a new skill to master, theatre professional to meet, or task to accomplish – from running the Godspell Open Call, researching court cases, to emailing Congressmen. In addition to the knowledge I acquired, I’m also grateful for the access to free tickets to various performances throughout New York, readings, master classes, and even a Tony Awards Party!” – Jenny Gorelick, Former Executive Intern

“I feel so fortunate that I was able to take my internship at Davenport Theatrical and turn it into a career. The thing that sets an internship with DTE apart from so many others is that you get an unprecedented amount of hands-on experience in so many areas. I can’t think of a better place to take your passion for theater and turn it into a career.” – Ben Skinner, Former Marketing Intern

“Interning at Davenport Theatrical was my first step into the world of theater. What I saw as a first step turned out to be a giant leap! My first week consisted of a Broadway show opening, delivering packages to every stage door in the Theater District, and learning how Internet marketing and web design contribute to the success of a show. This is an amazing office, a creative environment, and a wonderful place to learn about all aspects of theater.” – Marie Gossman, Former Online Marketing Intern
