Premiere Stages’ summer internships are full-time, seasonal positions. The program provides intense on-the-job training, weekly educational seminars, and field trips to New York City. These internships are for individuals who desire practical experience in the real world, and for those who are willing to fully commit their time and energy to the program.
Candidates must have completed at least one year of college. Interns are encouraged to bring their vehicles with them when possible.
Internships are offered June 4 - August 3, 2018. All students are expected to be available for the duration of the program. Evening and weekend work required. Kean students may have the option to extend their internships into the Fall.
All interns receive a weekly stipend of $175. A limited number of interns are eligible for on-campus housing. Travel expense to and from Premiere is the responsibility of the intern. Academic credit may be arranged at the discretion of the sponsoring college and is coordinated by the intern. Interns may participate in the Equity Membership Candidate Program (EMC), when applicable.
All administrative interns serve as front of house staff for productions, work production strikes, and assist with general office duties including filing, data entry, and poster runs.
Technical Theatre Internships
All technical theatre interns serve as backstage crew for productions, assist with load-in and participate in strike.
