High School Internships

Do you love theatre? Do you want to share your passion with others? TheatreWorks’ High School Internships take place during our summer camp for campers grades K – 6. At camp Teaching Artists and Counselors guide campers in creating their own short play—from playwriting to music to acting—while having fun and making friends along the way. Interns will be mentored by a master teaching artist and have the opportunity to:


  • Observe and assist experienced Teaching Artists
  • Lead games and exercises under the guidance of experienced arts educators
  • Learn theatre lesson planning skills
  • Learn class management skills
  • Design and create a special project to present to the campers of their session
  • Receive a valuable internship experience for college and employment applications


This is an unpaid internship opportunity for high school students entering grades 10-12. The number of internships available is determined by camp enrollment. Interested teens may apply for training opportunities during the following camp sessions:
