Production & Administrative Internships
Berkshire Theatre Group offers Production and Administrative Internships. Applicants for this program need to be students with some theatre experience who are looking to expand their knowledge with hands-on work and mentorship from professional department heads. Each intern is a crucial part of the creation and operation of the festival from running professional shows, to building sets, costumes, to house managing and working in our marketing and development departments. This is the opportunity to gain familiarity and work experience in the theatre career you are headed towards. College credit is available by request. All internships include housing and meals. There is a one time fee for the meal plan.
Internships are available in the following departments:
- Scenic Art
- Stage Management
- General Production
- Company Management
- Ticket Office
- House Management
- General Management
- Food Service
Part college dorm, part elite internship, and part intensive community experiment, the education program at Berkshire Theatre provides an experience unlike any other.
