The Festival offers one of the most effective professional theatre training programs for high school and college students in the region. Our Intern/Apprentice program nurtures the next generation of theatre artists by giving young people a real-world, hands-on experience in the professional theatre that includes production, education, and management.
Annually, the Festival employs between 15-20 college and high school students from area educational institutions. Participants gain invaluable experience working at a variety of behind-the-scenes positions in the areas of stage management, costumes, lighting, and scenic design and construction. Interns also assist as education interns for the Camp Shakespeare program and provide critical administrative support to the Festival.
Most internships are paid positions. Internships typically begin in May 2017 and last through July 2017; specific dates will be determined by each department. Please note: HASF does not provide housing or transportation.
