Theater Operations Internship
Theater Operations encompasses all aspects of facilities and operations including production, event operations, engineering, security, and administration. An internship in theater operations will de-mystify the “behind-the-scenes” aspect of what it takes to operate a performing arts facility. Interns will have the opportunity to engage with the Center’s staff in areas including show preparation, backstage operations, event installation, special events and rental procedures, building security, and facilities maintenance. Due to the variety of shows and events at the Center, interns should be available on nights and weekends.
This is a for credit, unpaid internship and you must be enrolled and receiving credit for the internship in order to be eligible.
