Special Events Internships

At PacRep, special events are mounted to celebrate Opening Nights, cultivate future patrons, and provide benefits for current donors. Larger events, such as our annual fundraising galas, require months of preparation and logistical support.

Others can be small receptions for 50 VIPs in the theatre lobby before the show. Interns are included in departmental meetings and strategy sessions. This internship is recommended for those interested in event planning in any business sector, and for development, fundraising, and project management in the non-profit arts.


The special events intern will support the Special Events Committee and the Development staff through event-based donor cultivation, stewardship and fundraising for events such as Board sponsored Cocktail Parties, Donor and Board Receptions, and our two annual fundraising galas. The intern will also support marketing-related events including Opening Night Parties, Promotional Appearances, and the PacRep Speakers’ Bureau. Tasks may include, but are not limited to:
  • Mailings & telephone contacts
  • Write copy, edit proofs, track and coordinate advertising
  • Track and process RSVPs
  • Maintain inventories for printed material and event supplies
  • Communication with vendors, hosts, volunteers and venue staff
  • Upkeep of event files and special event database
  • Transfer of event materials between event site and storage space
  • Upkeep storage inventory


A creative eye, excellent communication skills (writing, phone, and event presentation), detail oriented, ability to work effectively with volunteers, computer savvy in Microsoft Word and Excel (not required), experience in theatre arts a major plus.


Summer interns work full time and for a minimum of 6 weeks. Average schedule is 30 hours weekdays and 10 hours evenings/weekends at the events. Fall/Winter/Spring interns may work part time if desired for a minimum of 12 weeks. Average schedule is 16-20 hours per week plus 10 hours evenings/weekends at the events. Specific scheduling is arranged with the Special Events Committee.
