Stage Management (Fall/Winter/Spring)

The stage management intern experience at Children's Theatre Company (CTC) is set up to give the intern an internal view of the rehearsal process of a professional regional theatre.

The stage management intern will observe the daily duties of CTC’s stage management team: the set up of the rehearsal hall, both the overall and the daily production paperwork, the running of the rehearsals themselves and the outside communication and collaboration with the designers and production staff.  The intern also has a unique opportunity to look at how a director puts a show together – from the rehearsal process to production/design meetings to technical rehearsals to previews to opening night.  

Intern candidates must have substantial previous stage management experience with a college, community, or professional theatre.

Since the production schedule is intense and very strenuous, a strong commitment to a career in theater is necessary.  The stage management schedule is based on a six-day work week.  Rehearsals can run from 11am to 9pm with a dinner break – times may vary depending on the cast and artistic team.  Interns may work hours on either end of this schedule to do preparatory work.  The internship takes place during the rehearsal period only and completes on opening night.  Interns may be invited to stay and participate in understudy rehearsals post-opening.  EMC points can be available for this internship.

Cinderella | September 24 through November 13, 2019
Three Little Birds | December 10, 2019 through January 29, 2020
