Rattlestick Playwrights Theater is a small, hands-on environment. We offer three internship programs per year: Fall, Spring, and Summer.
Marketing & Development Internship: Responsibilities include a wide selection of administrative tasks, including marketing and promotion, website maintenance, graphic design, development research, grant writing, facilities maintenance, database management, financial planning and processing. You are required to fulfill your 18 hour work week three days a week.
Production Internship: Requirements include patience, creativity and the ability to lift and carry 30+ lbs.
Preferred: Understanding of how basic theatrical tech works (lights, sound, set etc), understanding of how to use basic hand and power tools.
Learn how ideas become reality. The production intern will learn not only how to execute the physical life and design elements of a theatrical production, but also how to maintain a professional theater space. The purview of a production manager includes, but is not limited to, budget, design, scheduling, union and city regulations, people management, facility management, run concerns and sustainability concerns. This internship is an opportunity to learn about all of these facets.
Time commitment will be flexible. Schedule is based on production needs with load in, tech, and strike being the heaviest. Weekly tasks will be provided.
These are non-paying internships. School credit is available upon request.
