Student stage carpenters, riggers, electricians, board operators, and sound technicians are all encouraged to apply for a Technical Internship. Tech interns are eligible for free housing and board, and festival registration fees are waived. Interns assist with the load-ins and strikes of participating productions and help with the backstage aspects of other festival events as well. It is an opportunity to work in a new-to-you venue with faculty and students from other area colleges. While the work can be hard and the hours long, interns in years past have described the event as an eye-opening and awesome experience. The tech intern schedule is such that there is still plenty of free time to attend many conference sessions, events, and performances.
Applications are due by January 8th, 2024. Be sure to submit a Program Information Form and select Festival Internships/Technical Internships to be notified when the application form opens.
