About The Internship Program:

Seattle Children’s Theatre is one of the largest professional children’s theatres in the US, producing 5 professional Mainstage productions during the school year. Each summer, SCT Education Programs offers over 15 internship positions to support Drama School programming including nearly 200 camps and classes for students ages 3½ -18, partnership camps across the city, and programming for the upcoming season and school year. The Internship Program is an exciting opportunity to develop hands-on experience in theatre education through classroom observation, teaching artistry, and arts administration, while building professional relationships in the field. In addition, interns receive professional development opportunities to increase proficiency in theatre, education, and administration.

Internships typically run from early June through end of August for approx. 40 hours a week; the length of internship is dependent on position. Interns are required to attend professional development, master classes, and networking opportunities that are provided throughout the summer. Stipend is $225/week plus compensation for a bus or parking pass. Housing not provided.
