The props intern will have both shop and show running duties depending on the point in the season. Interns will also be a part of the repertory changeover crew. Comfortability in trying new techniques and working as a part of a team while learning is a must. Salary is $300/wk plus housing.

Interns will also be a part of the repertory changeover crew. Must be comfortable in a backstage environment, capable of lifting, good at following detailed directions and asking follow up questions as needed. Salary is $300/wk plus housing.
