Northern Sky Production/Acting Internships

Summer Internships – mid-May thru August

Northern Sky interns work with our Production Stage Manager throughout the rehearsal period, assisting in all areas of the theater: costumes, props, set-up, takedown, clean-up, attending rehearsals, helping with computer reports, prompting, etc. If you are a performer, you may be assigned to an understudy position. There are sometimes roles available as well, and interns will be given a chance to audition, if appropriate. We try to fit you with the areas in which you’re most interested. Interns assist with PR if time permits.

The rehearsal period is pretty intense, with long hours and late nights at the park and in the Gould (our indoor theater). Sometimes the weather in outdoor theatre can be pretty challenging when trying to get enough tech hours in and everyone has to be very flexible and good-humored.

Once the shows are open, you’d be part of the backstage and run crew either at the park or in the Gould. Interns may assist our wonderful volunteers with parking on a rotational basis. They are part of the set-up and strike crew, responsible for dressing room and costume maintenance. This all becomes routine by the time all the shows are open. 

Interns will also be on call for the fall show rehearsals starting in August during the day. There are also weekly scheduled brush up rehearsals for anyone understudying or performing during the summer or fall.

We provide housing and pay a weekly stipend of $300. You would need your own car. We do between six to eight shows a week in both venues, Monday to Saturday. Sunday is the day off. Your contract dates would be May 14-August 27, 2023.

Many of the interns who have been at Northern request to come back, and some have gone on to other positions in our company. The Northern Sky intern experience is challenging in a good way, and the people you will get to work and play with are a great bunch of professionals who really respect the interns’ contributions and importance to the theater.
