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).
In assisting the Producing Director and Associate Production Manager, as well as the Director of Artist Relations and Company Manager, this internship provides hands-on experience in contracting artists, maintaining schedules, archiving, and making the artists feel welcome in our theatres. The intern will experience the inner-workings of all areas of production covered under various theatrical union contracts. The intern will be the Production Manager for the annual Playwrighting Project, which allows the intern to put into practice what he or she has learned and observed. The supervisor for this internship position is Associate Production Manager Matt Giles, who offers this advice to future Production Management Interns: "Anything can be done with just a little planning ahead!"
