Scene Construction Internships featuring set from 2015 PacRep production of CATS

PacRep mounts 9 to12 stage productions each season. The scene shop maintains two full time permanent staff members and hires additional contract carpenters and technicians as needed throughout the season. The number of internships available varies from one to four per season depending on production needs. Design internships are not offered. Recommended for students interested in scenic construction or scenic design for the stage.



Assist staff and overhire carpenters in all areas of scenic construction, and in the maintenance of a clean, productive shop environment. Interns will not be expected to do tasks that are not already part of the staff/overhire workload. As the intern’s work quality and speed is evaluated through the early part of the internship, additional responsibilities and independent project assignments may be available. Interns are encouraged to be proactive and vocal about specific areas of interest and where possible, will be given opportunities for exposure in these areas.

Skills Requirements
  • Experience with larger power tools (table saws, radial arm saw, drill press, etc.) required
  • Two or more years using these items in theatrical applications preferred
  • College level training in related fields preferred (construction, carpentry, welding, mechanical engineering, etc.)

Summer interns work full time and for a minimum of 6 weeks. Fall/Winter/Spring interns may work part time if desired for a minimum of 12 weeks. Specific scheduling is arranged with the company technical director.

Special Events

Interns are expected to work on large company special events such Opening Night Parties, the annual dinner Auctions, or large patron events.
