Internships

The Croswell Opera House is now accepting applications for 2023 summer internships. These are paid positions; the stipend is $400 per week for a total of 12 weeks, May through August (exact start and end dates are flexible), plus $250 for travel expenses. The Croswell will coordinate housing.

The positions are:

  • Costume shop interns: These interns build and alter costumes, style hair and wigs, attend some rehearsals, and serve as wardrobe or run crew during performances. Strong sewing skills are mandatory, as our costume team produces a large number of costumes in a very short time. Fitting, cutting, draping and tailoring skills are also required.
  • Technical interns: Responsibilities cover a wide range of technical theater disciplines, with an emphasis on carpentry. Interns may also work in lighting and sound, and will serve as run crew during performances.
  • Properties interns: These interns use a variety of media to design and build props for the summer’s shows and will also serve on the run crew for performances.
  • Box office intern: This person focuses primarily on the box office but will also have an opportunity to gain experience in other areas, such as marketing and communication, if desired.

Croswell interns are considered full members of the artistic team and have the opportunity to work alongside professional directors, designers and other members of the creative staff. We offer a professional and fast-paced, yet fun, friendly and supportive environment.

Interns must be at least 18 years old as of the internship’s start date. They must be enrolled in college as of fall 2023, or have graduated no earlier than December 2022.

The Croswell does not offer performance internships.

The application deadline is Monday, January 23. To apply, please email cover letter, resume and references to Jen Letherer, production manager, at  jletherer@croswell.org. Links to online portfolios are helpful.
