Theater Operations encompasses all aspects of facilities and operations including production, event operations, engineering, security, and administration. An internship in theater operations will de-mystify the “behind-the-scenes” aspect of what it takes to operate a performing arts facility. Interns will have the opportunity to engage with the Center’s staff in areas including show preparation, backstage operations, event installation, special events and rental procedures, building security, and facilities maintenance. Due to the variety of shows and events at the Center, interns should be available on nights and weekends.
All internships are paid at the rate of $15 per hour. Internships require an average of 10 hours per week (built around your school schedule) over 12 weeks (120 hours total). Internships offer academic credit. Each semester includes 6-8 professional development sessions. Internships offer hands-on work experiences and opportunities to build a professional network.
Requirements for our fall/spring internships are: Interns must be authorized to work in the U.S. and must be 18 years of age or older. Interns must be registered for credit from their college institution. Interns must be able to complete a minimum of 120 hours during the 12-week internship. Interns must be available to attend professional development sessions from 2pm-3pm on Fridays. Interns must have received or be willing to receive the COVID-19 vaccine by the start date of the internship. Segerstrom Center for the Arts will provide reasonable accommodations to qualified interns with disabilities or for a sincerely held religious belief.
