Meet Dannley & Jillian, Summer 2012 Communications Apprentices

The New 42 Apprentice Program creates year-round, paid employment opportunities for diverse groups of high school, college and graduate students across the city. Apprentices are assigned to a department depending on their personal fields of interest and work alongside theater staff and technicians throughout their tenure. They gain first-hand experience in performing arts administration and meet weekly with members of the New Victory Education Department to review the program’s curriculum.

Hello! We’re Dannley and Jillian and we are the summer 2012 Communications Apprentices for the New 42nd Street. We help to monitor the hottest theater topics, follow the latest marketing trends, and maintain the New Vic’s social media accounts. For our first blog we wanted to introduce ourselves and learn a bit more about one another. Check out the blog later this summer when we’ll be writing about New 42 Apprentices, both old and new. If you want to hear more from us before our next blog post check us out on Twitter: @42Apprentice.
