Summer Teaching Internship
Stone Soup’s Theatre’s educational programs focus on giving each young actor the tools they need to succeed on stage. All our student productions are actor-centered: our students are the true stars of our shows! We take focus away from the technical aspects of theatre and put it back in our young actor’s imaginations. We use suggestive costuming, sets and props to enable our student performers to bring the world of the play to life.

Job Duties: Duties include assisting Teaching Artists in the creation of live theatre pieces; supervising, guiding and encouraging young performers; organizing scripts and attendance sheets; and the coordination of props and costumes.  Interns will gain first-hand experience in bringing a script from page to stage with young performers including observing and collaborating with experienced teaching artists and leading games and exercises while also gaining classroom/rehearsal management skills.

Requirements:

– Interns must be available to work 7-8 weeks, from late June through August in our outdoor summer camps.

– Interns must be able to work 9am-3pm weekdays during the summer.

– Interns must complete each camp they are assigned to in order to fulfill the internship requirements.
