PacRep Work-Experience Program
PacRep affords an opportunity for students, pre-professionals, and career-changers to join our team, working side-by-side with a highly experienced staff of artists and administrators. The philosophy of the program is to have the intern work with the staff and artists on a daily basis, observing practical applications of skills required in specific areas and applying those skills to assigned projects.
While every effort is made to make internships a valuable educational experience, interns are expected to perform a variety of tasks, not all of which will be glamorous. In all cases, PacRep strives to provide a range of experiences that will broaden our interns' understanding of professional regional theatre and non-profit arts. We offer a busy year-round program where interns work in their primary area of interest as well as participating in cross-departmental activities.
Internships run from six weeks to a full season. There are occasional openings for periods shorter or longer than this, but the average internship runs two to four months. The type of internship for which you are applying determines the length of internship. Many enrichment opportunities are offered. Complimentary tickets are offered to all interns. Program participants are invited to attend departmental meetings, special events, and numerous production-related activities. Private portfolio reviews and resume critiques are also available upon request.
Interns are expected to produce written goals, and will meet with the intern manager and their staff mentors for evaluation and follow-up. At the completion of their internship, interns receive oral evaluations and/or recommendations, letters of reference, supplementary college credit and a certificate of achievement.
Our program is intended for applicants of college age or older. Exceptional high school seniors will be considered for part-time or summer break only.
Applicants must hold U.S.citizenship, or be in possession of legal work permits prior to application.
Summer internships begin on or around June 1 and run through mid-August. Summer interns must log at least 100 hours, regardless of how that time is structured. Fall/Winter/Spring internships average 2-4 months in duration, and dates/hours are individually determined. Please review individual internships details for further information.
Financial Info - Reimbursement/Housing/Transportation
Internships are unpaid. We do not offer housing, but will assist interns in locating appropriate local rental situations. Out-of-town applicants should plan on housing costs ranging from $500 - $800 per month.
Offices and performance venues are not readily accessible by public transit. Interns must provide their own vehicles. Qualified interns may apply for paid stipends on a running crew or in our administrative offices. Please click on the internship title for more detailed information on each internship.
