The Croswell Opera House offers paid summer internships for college students. Summer 2022 positions have been filled; opportunities for Summer 2023 will be posted in late 2022. Positions typically include:

  • 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 also takes on a variety of business office responsibilities including marketing and communications.

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 the following fall, or have graduated no earlier than the previous December.

The Croswell does not offer performance internships.
