Interns must be available full time - nights, evenings and weekends - during the rehearsal process. Stage management interns have more direct contact with the production process than other interns. Many stage management interns will choose to work in props or administration for some weeks prior to commencement of rehearsals, to gain a broader perspective of the company. Recommended for students who are seriously considering stage management careers.
