Rep Intern Program
Any interested local high-school aged students are invited to join the Seaside Repertory Theatre’s year-long unpaid Internship Program. Each intern dedicates 15 hours per week/60 hours per month to learning and performing every responsibility associated with operating a professional theatre, including working backstage crews for sets, lights, sound, costumes and props. Interns work closely with professional directors, designers, crew, and actors while providing labor support, in order to understand each process from start to finish. Rep interns also operate the box office and perform house management and ushering duties during the Rep’s main stage productions, and spend time in the Rep office, learning administrative operations including marketing, public relations, fund raising and memberships. Workshops with a professional company member are offered, teaching the interns different artistic elements of theatre. Workshops include acting through monologue work and scene study, improv techniques, script analysis and writing, and directing short scenes. Every summer and winter the interns produce a play, directed by a Rep professional company member, and presented on the Rep’s main stage, with all proceeds directly benefiting the Rep Intern Program.
