High School Technical Theatre Internship

Each summer, MAPA offers an internship for high school students interested in learning more about technical theatre. Students will assist in the creation of the MAPA Summer Musical Theatre Camp scenery, properties, costumes and more. In addition to assisting with the Summer Camp build, students will earn opportunities to work crew on productions at a variety of venues with positions including but not limited to: Backstage Run Crew, Spotlight Operation, Light Board Operation, Sound Engineering, Costuming, and Box Office. The hours, dates and focus of each internship are tailored made to fit any skill level. Applications are accepted from March through May for work Memorial Day through Labor Day.
