Oscar Wilde once said, “I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being.” If you’re someone who agrees with this statement, you should look into theatre internships. These positions are great because they allow you to learn about all aspects of theatre: not only acting, but production, and everything else that goes into making a play. Plus, in an industry that heavily relies on professional contacts, as a theatre intern you’ll garner valuable connections that can help you out later on in your career. Many internships in theatre offer stipends and other perks like covering transportation costs. And nowhere else will you have such a fantastic opportunity to let your creative juices flow; not only this, but most interns in theatre are given an evaluation at their internship’s completion, which is incredibly valuable in a field in which everyone is criticizing you. If your theatre internship evaluation is positive, you may even get hired on at the theatre you worked with, but either way, all of the benefits of holding a theatre internship will act as valuable assets for any theatre student.
