A limited number of performance internships are available each season. Internships typically involve onstage and backstage work on our Theatre for Young Audiences productions and/or Camp Creamery theatre workshops. Internships include the opportunity to participate in the Equity Membership Candidacy program. Membership and applicable weeks in Equity’s EMC program are available for regular Main Stage productions only. (EMC is not available for Old Creamery Theatre for Young Audiences productions).
Internships can begin as early as March, but typically have summer or fall start dates and most require fall availability. All internships include housing plus a $225 per week living stipend. Intern duties involve all aspects of theatre and may include but are not limited to: performing, costuming, set work, assistant stage management, house management, props, lighting, sound, promotions, assistant teaching, box office, and concessions assignments.
