The Center for Puppetry Arts Stage Management Internship program provides practical learning experience to the individual interested in pursuing a career in professional theater. Through hands-on activities, the program seeks to instill a fundamental understanding of the workings of a professional puppetry company.
The focus of the program will be active participation in a Center production. During the rehearsal period, the Intern will observe and participate in daily rehearsal duties, and assist the Stage Manager in tracking and managing the development of the production. The Intern will also serve as understudy for the Production Stage Manager and may have the opportunity to run the show at least once during the run of the production. In addition to the participation in a Center production, the Intern will have the opportunity to participate in the following activities:
Attend programmed guest artist and adult series performances
Attend programmed workshops with guest artists
Shadow the Stage Manager for a Guest Artist show at the Center

The schedule will be determined by the needs of the production and mutually agreed upon by Intern and Center staff. It will closely mirror that of the Production Stage Manager. During the rehearsal period Interns will work 30-40 hours per week. All additional activities will be scheduled during the prep week, prior to, or during the run of the show at mutually agreed upon times. See attached schedule for production dates and times.
