Hangar Theatre Intern


The Hangar Internship Program offers you the opportunity to work alongside professional artists and managers at the forefront of an award-winning regional not-for-profit theatre in the beautiful Finger Lakes region of upstate New York. Internships at the Hangar Theatre are designed to give creative and ambitious individuals who are interested in theatre the opportunity to work directly with professional theatre artists and administrators, and the opportunity for students to bridge the gap between collegiate work and professional life.

The goals of our Internship Program are to offer students and aspiring theatre professionals experiential learning and insight into a career path, facilitate opportunities to make professional contacts, and equip individuals with marketable skills for jobs and graduate programs in theatre and not-for-profit management. We expect a willingness to work hard and high standards of performance. In return, interns are treated as members of our professional staff and receive intensive hands-on experience. We ask that all interns be reliable, conscientious and energetic. Most summer season internships require a commitment of at least 10 weeks but in some cases a shorter time commitment can be agreed upon with the specific department head.
