Summer Internship Program

We’re looking for you, high school student. Yes, you. The one who can’t help but grin when someone calls them a “theatre geek.” The one who believes gaff tape can fix anything. The one who can sing along with any musical soundtrack. The one who is just as passionate about backstage as they are about center stage. We’re looking for the ones who believe theatre is life. And the best way to learn theatre is to live theatre.

Selected interns will join Sacred Heart University Repertory Theatre members for three weeks to help produce their summer theatre programming. This is a hands-on, fully immersive experience. You’ll do a little bit of everything – train on the newest theatrical software, join the creative team, grab a script for an improvised and exploratory presentation of the Bard’s greatest hits. This program will fully engage interns in the world of fast paced theatre with industry professionals at the helm.

Discover your talents. Your story starts here.
