The Civic employs seven Interns in five disciplines: Costume Design, Lighting/Sound/SFX Design, Scenic Design, Stage Management and Technical Direction.
The goal of our Internship Program is to provide a motivating, highly professional atmosphere in which the Intern is challenged with the practical application of prior skills and training, while striving to acquire new skills and experiences. Interns achieve this in the three ways:
- Completing realized designs or constructions, or managing a production in collaboration with a variety of staff, volunteers, and guest artists.
- Assisting the Resident Designers, the Technical Director and Production Stage Manager in any number of capacities as a carpenter, an electrician, a stitcher, a scenic artist, a props master, a sound engineer, etc.
- Assisting with the basic responsibilities of the upkeep and maintenance of the facilities in the Intern's respective area.
Interns work in three spaces: our beautifully renovated, 500-seat proscenium house and our nicely equipped multi-million dollar arena theatre and our 100 seat studio theatre.
