The Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre is seeking Carpentry Interns for our 2016 summer repertory season.

AST is the states only professional Shakespeare company and is housed on the campus of the University of Central Arkansas in Conway. Each summer, AST offers full productions of a range of Shakespeare's works, as well as other plays and musicals that help fulfill AST's mission to entertain, engage and enrich the community.

AST believes in creating a creative, collaborative environment in which all production members are part of the team, from the Sound Board Operator to the actor playing Romeo. We seek interns that are creative, organized problem solvers who think on their feet and would excel as part of our team.

In 2016, Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre presents A Midsummer Night's Dream, Romeo and Juliet, West Side Story, and a Family Shakespeare adaptation of Twelfth Night that will tour across the state. These productions are all rehearsed and will be presented in repertory.

Carpentry Interns will build, install and strike all sets for the summer productions, as well as execute the changeovers of our repertory stage. They may also be called to be on run crews for one or more productions.

Applicants must:
Have experience in the application area.
Have some knowledge of the safe operation of hand tools, power tools, pneumatic tools, and/or MIG welding.
Be able to lift up to 50 lbs. repeatedly
Have a valid drivers license
