BEGINNING JANUARY 2022
New York, NY – The John Gore Organization (JGO), the leading presenter, producer, distributor, and marketer of Broadway theater worldwide, is pleased to announce that their landmark partnership with Black Theatre Coalition (BTC), an organization dedicated to eradicating racial inequities in the theater industry, in the creation of a comprehensive paid fellowship program for undergraduate college juniors, seniors and recent collegegraduates is now accepting applications through October 15, 2021. The program, called The Black Theatre Coalition/Broadway Across America Fellowship, sponsored by the John Gore Organization, will provide ten paid 14-week part-time fellowships across the United States with training in the business of commercial theater, specifically in areas of Marketing, PR, Finance, Operations, Ticketing and Business Intelligence, beginning in January 2022.
In addition to on-the-job training, the program includes a comprehensive educational curriculum taught by BTC, BAA and other Broadway professionals, providing an invaluable, in-depth education in the business of commercial theater. The program also features a trip to New York City for regional fellows where the cohort will gather for in-person shadowing and networking opportunities.
Interested Black-identifying applicants should submit contact information, current school enrollment information, a personal statement, resume and one letter of recommendation at BroadwayFellows.com .
Recognizing the underrepresentation of BIPOC professionals in the commercial theater industry, this program will be dedicated to fostering and preserving a culture of equity, diversity, access, and inclusion. BTC-BAA Fellowships will initiallybe available in New York, Atlanta, Baltimore, Cincinnati, Fort Lauderdale, Houston, and Louisville.
The goal of this fellowship program is to provide undergraduate and postgraduate students with an opportunity to develop the job skills, industry-specific knowledge and network connections necessary to begin a professional career in the commercial theater industry.
At the John Gore Organization, we believe that live theater is for everyone. Everyone means people of all races, ethnicities, gender identities, sexual orientations and people with disabilities. We specifically want to increase participation for those that have been historically underrepresented in the commercial theater industry.

ABOUT BLACK THEATRE COALITION
Black Theatre Coalition was founded by T. Oliver Reid and Warren Adams during the Summer of 2019. They identified the disparity between the growing inclusivity onstage, versus the almost non-existence of Black professionals off stage. They invited their colleague, Reggie Van Lee, (Chief Transformation Officer of the Carlyle Group) to join them as Co-Founder and Chairman of The Board. Afton Battle is the Executive Strategist and Tamica Clanton is Digital Marketing Strategist.
BTC’s mission is to remove the “illusion of inclusion” in the American Theatre, by building a sustainable ethical roadmap that will increase employment opportunities for Black theatre professionals. Their vision is to reshape the working ecosystem for those who have been marginalized by systemically racist and biased ideology.
Black Theatre Coalition officially filed as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) in June of 2020.
