Each summer we offer paid internships in producing for post-secondary students. Students work with the company’s producer on projects to support our summer programs and prepare for our productions. Producing Interns gain skills in planning, communication, donor relations, fundraising, and marketing that are invaluable for an arts manager. They are also mentored by the company’s producer to address career goals and specific areas of interest.
