The Experience

Huntington's Professional Interns will participate as staff members within assigned departments on a variety of projects. For example, Scenery interns may work on budgeting and purchasing, as well as set construction and load-in. Artistic/Literary interns may assist with local casting calls, read and evaluate scripts, and write articles for
Huntington publications. There will be some administrative work, too (such as copying and filing) ? we all have to do that ? but interns will be integral parts of each department and included in department and full staff meetings. Furthermore, interns are encouraged to explore cross-departmental projects and draw from the collective
knowledge and resources of the Huntington community. Internship supervisors are committed to their role as mentor and our formal evaluation process provides an opportunity for both interns and supervisors to formulate meaningful goals and objectives for the course of the program.

Learn

In addition to their specialized training, Professional Interns will gain additional insight into the artistic and administrative operations of a professional theatre through our regularly scheduled Friday Forums. These lectures and workshops, led by Huntington staff, guest artists and members of the Boston arts community, will include
in-depth explorations of all aspects of theatre operations from casting to costumes, post-internship career research and counseling, and discussions on current issues related to theatre production and
management.

Benefits

Interns are paid an hourly rate of $8.75, however, it may not be enough to fully cover living expenses. Housing is not provided. Interns have the opportunity, if schedule permits, to be hired by other departments, such as Front of House and Box Office, to supplement their weekly income. Applicants should carefully consider their financial needs before entering the program. Additionally, each intern will receive complimentary tickets to all Huntington Theatre Company productions as well as opportunities for discounts at other cultural institutions and local establishments.

KO FESTIVAL

THE KO FESTIVAL OF PERFORMANCE IS SEEKING SUMMER INTERNS AND OFFERING A SERIES OF 6-DAY INTENSIVE WORKSHOPS.

Each year the performances at Ko are curated on a theme that we think will entertain, provoke and inspire our audiences! Our 23rd season has been curated on the theme of WORK | JOB | CAREER | CALLING. The shows are by a diverse group of artists:  Beau Jest Moving Theatre, Judith Sloan & Earsay, The Independent Eye, and Alice Eve Cohen. We will also offer a couple of special events by Carpetbag Brigade (an extraordinary stilt company), the Mettawee River Theatre Company with an all-ages event with masks, giant puppets and live music, and a Story Slam on our season theme in which interns, Ko artists and community members participate, plus an interactive visual art installation. All our shows are adventurous, devised works created by the people who perform them & their teams of collaborators. In addition, we offer rehearsal residencies and intensive 6-day workshops by master teachers Gerard Stropnicky, Baba Israel, and Elizabeth Fuller and Conrad Bishop of The Independent Eye. The 5-week festival will take place in on the Amherst College campus in Amherst, MA. Interns have ranged from 18-55 and have been students, educators and professionals looking to expand their horizons.

Who Might Be Interested: Naturally those with a theater background, but also to those compelled by the season theme.  Most often undergraduate and graduate students, but we have also had faculty members and practicing professionals who want to reenergize and widen their horizons join us.

General Description of the Internship: Interns work closely with the staff and the visiting artists to execute the full range of summer activities, including mounting and running of shows, assisting with rehearsal residencies where new work is being created, hosting the visiting artists and workshop students, and the creation of visual displays about the work – including an interactive art installation by Kali Quinn. Interns are full members of the artistic community at the festival, and as such are encouraged to participate in the discussions that follow all the performances at the festival. Experience, particularly in the technical and front-of-house aspects of theater production, is welcome but all interns will receive additional training for their work, which will be in a multiplicity of production areas.

Useful Information: All activities will be held on the Amherst College campus in Amherst, MA for the month of July and depart on August 6. Internship dates may be somewhat flexible.  Interns are housed on campus with the artists in a wonderful mansion with a large and fully-equipped kitchen. Interns are eligible to use the state-of-the-art campus gym and pool. There is a bike path right near the housing and the center of Amherst is just a short walk away.

PORTLAND STAGE (MAINE)

I wanted to quickly plug our internship program at Portland Stage Company because the deadline to apply is less than a month away on March 15th! Also, to all of you out there who teach undergrads, please pass this information on to any of your students whom you think might be interested!

So, PSC offers full-season, paid internships in both Directing/Dramaturgy and Literary/Education. The internships are intensive and extremely hands-on: we expect a lot of our interns and also give them a lot of responsibilities. Portland Stage is a LORT-D theater, so the permanent staff is not huge and the intern company are a crucial part of making theater here. It's really a "learning by doing" internship, not a "learning by watching" internship, and is a great internship for people who are really interested in learning how producing theater gets done on a regional level and aspire to one day work in that setting. For a lot of people, it's also been a great "real world" bridge to grad programs of various kinds.

Here's a little more information on the two internships:

DIRECTING/DRAMATURGY:

Directing/Dramaturgy interns assist directors during rehearsals of mainstage productions and work with the artistic staff on daily administrative activities in the Education and Literary departments.

Interns assist with PSC's annual play festivals, From Away and Little Festival of the Unexpected. Dramaturgical duties include researching, writing, editing, and laying-out resource guides, reading and evaluating scripts, and assisting with post-play discussions. All directing/dramaturgy interns serve on run crew for selected shows during the season.

LITERARY/EDUCATION:

Literary/Education interns assist the literary staff with reading and evaluating scripts and playwright correspondence. Interns also take part in planning From Away and Little Festival of the Unexpected, PSC's annual play festivals. In the Education department, interns are responsible for researching, writing, editing, and laying-out resource guides, and play an integral role in the ongoing administration of education programs. Literary/Education interns also serve on run crew for selected shows during the season.

We pay our interns a weekly stipend and give them free, furnished housing a few blocks from the theater. The application form and more complete information on our internships are available online at www.portlandstage.com/internships. Also, if anyone has questions about the internships, including any professors out there who are curious about what we have to offer, you can feel free to e-mail me directly at dburson@portlandstage.com and I'll be glad to talk about the program (which I actually am an alum of a number of years ago!). The deadline to submit your application for either internship is March 15, 2008.

Happy Presidents Day everyone,

TRIARTS SHARON PLAYHOUSE

My name is Cait Weisensee, class of '11, and I am the Production Manager this summer at TriArts Sharon Playhouse in Sharon, CT. We produce a full season of straight plays and musicals, and are looking for interns for our coming season in Scenery (2), Costumes (3), Electrics, Sound, Paints, and ASM's (2). We are a summer stock in our third season, and the large intern company plays an invaluable role - this internship is about doing, not observing, which I know you're all prepared and eager for.

The dates run from May 12th-August 24th and offers $1875 for the summer (roughly $125/week) as well as dorm-style housing. This is a great opportunity for technical theater students interested in developing a network on the East Coast.

If this opportunity interests you, please send a resume and brief cover letter detailing the internship(s) that most interest you ASAP, and I will follow up. We are filling these positions NOW, and I'd love to fill them with Puget Sound students. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any and all questions. I look forward to hearing from you!

Best,
Cait Weisensee
