Internships at Theatre Project will not have you running after coffee and making copies. You will be integrated as a trusted member of the team that makes one of Baltimore’s important artistic institutions run. Training will be provided, but interns will work independently. They are a great opportunity for a serious student (with a good sense of humor!) to learn the ins and outs of a small non-profit by being involved in the day-to-day activites of operations. Internships have flexible schedules and are not paid, but we can arrange for credit through your university.
Summer, fall, winter, and spring internships are available in the following areas:
Technical/Production: assist with load-in and light focus for shows; assist with building/procuring set and prop pieces; assist with lighting design, when needed; run lights and sound for shows; commitment can be anywhere from two weeks to full semester. Important skills: flexibility, teamwork, willingness to learn
Marketing and Press Relations: create show-specific promotional materials; manage distribution of promotional materials; create visually appealing press releases and newsletters; create/size graphics for various publications; manage social media. Important skills: organization, prioritizing, written communication
Development: assist with annual fundraising gala; update donor database and assist with donation appeals; research grants and donor programs. Important skills: written communication, teamwork, attention to detail
Community Outreach/Audience Development: design and implement a strategy that will increase Theatre Project’s public visibility; organize pre- and post- show events; research and invite specific groups to shows based on content and theme. Important skills: written and verbal communication, organization, research
