Seattle Repertory Theatre
155 Mercer Street
DescriptionAre you a creative, driven, passionate about the arts, and looking for a bridge between university and the world of professional theatre? Seattle Repertory Theatre is seeking interns for their 2014-2015 season.!
Seattle Rep's renowned Professional Arts Training Program has been preparing theatre artists and administrators for 20 years. Our interns are bright, self-motivated individuals with basic training and experience in theatre who are committed to strengthening their skills and talents. They are effective communicators with an enthusiasm for community building and self-discovery. And they go on to work at the country's top organizations (including right here at the Rep).
As part of our commitment to developing emerging theatre artists, we offer a specialized Lighting Design Internship for applicants who have advanced academic experience or extensive small theatre experience in lighting design and are looking to expand their knowledge to the workings of a large, regional theatre. The internship focuses on two main areas: developing practical skills in the area of Assistant Lighting Design (ranging from drafting and paperwork to communicating and working with a union crew), and developing the intern's design skill set through a series of theoretical design projects (research methods, drawing, storyboarding, model building, etc.). The intern will serve as a Design Assistant on at least one production. The supervisor for this internship position is Associate Designer L.B. Morse, who offers this advice for future Lighting Design Interns: "The hours are long, the work is hard, and you'll be exposed to some of the best design in the country."

ResponsibilitiesInterns undertake responsibilities as members of the staff, contribute ideas, participate in department and staff meetings, and complete projects under the guidance of their supervisors. Interns also participate in professional workshops and seminars, which provide contact with theatre staff, guest artists, and members of the Seattle arts community. Staff members guide the work of each intern to help prepare them for a career in professional theatre.
RequirementsApplicants should regard the Professional Arts Training Program as a full-time commitment of at least 32 hours per week throughout our full season (September through May). Interns will receive a weekly stipend of $200. We require a resume, two (2) letters of recommendation and a letter of intent. Please send these materials to firstname.lastname@example.org to complete your application.
