The Victory Gardens Theater internship program offers exciting opportunities for students and young professionals to gain hands on experience working side-by-side with extraordinary artists, administrators and technicians.

Interns will be actively involved with all areas of theater on many different levels. Department heads will give interns tasks and challenges that will provide direct support to our day-to-day activities. Victory Gardens staff members will serve as mentors to each intern to ensure they have every chance for professional growth. Our goal is to give interns a comprehensive experience in theater production and theater management to provide the skills necessary to be a viable candidate in a highly competitive field.

Victory Gardens Theater is pleased to offer year-round general internships in the following areas:

Items of note: Exact schedules will be set by the department head. Exact dates are flexible and arranged to correspond with intern’s college schedules. Housing is not provided. College credit may be available through the intern’s university or college. Interns receive complimentary tickets and are strongly encouraged to attend VG mainstage shows. Otherwise, these internships are unpaid. Victory Gardens Theater also accepts intern applications on an open basis throughout the year.
