Production Professional Internships
Interns gain experience assisting and providing integral support to the production department heads, staff, directors and designers in the implementation and maintenance of our productions. Interns will become well acquainted with the steps involved in taking a production from drawings to physical reality on stage, and with all of the duties and responsibilities of their respective department. The intern will develop skills to help solve problems and gain experience with various equipment and methods, as well as learn about budgeting, scheduling and resource allocation.
Our production departments execute the designs and production requirements for seven subscription productions; a production for the BU Opera Institute; educational and community outreach programs; facility rentals; and special events, using our production, main-stage and second-stage facilities. Interns will get to know students, professional technicians and crafts persons from all walks of professional theatre including Tony Award-nominated (perhaps winning) designers and directors.
Opportunities for additional income are plentiful, with freelance work available in Boston's ever expanding theatrical scene at a variety of levels. Some flexibility is built in to each position to suit the skills of the successful applicant and to further their educational and professional goals. The Huntington proudly maintains a high level of production value and successful candidates should leave this internship prepared to step into any number of widely available positions in professional theatre.
