Internship 2019: Croswell Opera House

Now hiring: Paid theater interns for Summer 2019

The Croswell Opera House in Adrian, Michigan, is now accepting applications for Summer 2019 internships.

Interns will work 13 weeks, from May to August, and will be a crucial part of this summer’s productions of The Music ManViolet, and Sister Act. Exact starting and ending dates are flexible. These are full-time, paid positions. The salary is $300 per week. Housing may be available. Some evening hours will be required, and all interns will be expected to work on production weekends.

Croswell interns are considered full members of the 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.


About the positions

  • Costume shop intern: This person will work directly with the designers, sourcing costume pieces, building and altering costumes for summer shows, styling hair and wigs, attending some rehearsals, and serving as run crew during performances. Sewing, fitting, cutting, draping and tailoring skills are required.
  • Technical interns: Responsibilities will 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 intern: This person will 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 and arts management intern: Responsibilities will include selling tickets, assisting patrons on show nights, and helping with various office responsibilities. Although the responsibilities primarily involve the box office, this intern will have the opportunity to learn about other areas of arts management, such as marketing and development.

Application requirements

Applicants must either be enrolled in college as of fall 2019 or have graduated no earlier than December 2018, and must also be 18 years old as of the internship’s start date. For the backstage positions, students who are focused on careers in technical theater are preferred.
