Investing in The NOLA Project means investing in the health and future of New Orleans theatre

With your help, The NOLA Project has continued to successfully provide opportunities for actors, designers, playwrights and artists to flourish in our community. We are one of the largest employers of theatre artists in the state of Louisiana and regularly produce new work from both local and national writers in an effort to bring our New Orleans stories to the entire world. Help us continue to build our arts community and bring New Orleans theatre to a more prominent national level. By contributing to our organization, you will be playing an instrumental role in giving our artists the resources they need to create the best possible work with the highest standards of excellence.

Great Experience with a Growing Organization

The NOLA Project selectively seeks interns each season to assist in our administrative tasks and learn from our leadership team. We specifically are interested in interns at the college level who have a keen interest in theatre, some background in arts administration, box office, or backstage work, and a willingness to work during traditional theatre hours. If you are interested in interning, please email us with a letter of intent and a resume.



Make Great Theatre Together

Theatre Artists wishing to work with The NOLA Project are welcome to submit a cover letter, headshot, and resume to our artistic leadership. The NOLA Project actively seeks theatre artists with formal training and a strong ensemble mentality.*


*Note: consideration for NP Ensemble Membership only may occur after a minimum of two NOLA Project productions for any theatre artist. Members are nominated by a committee and voted upon by the entire active ensemble.
