Throughout the internship, ETP interns:
Act as integral members of their respective departments; obtaining real world experience in a creative and supportive atmosphere
Receive one-on-one mentoring from ETP's creative team
Build professional relationships
Develop a body of work that can be used towards building a professional portfolio
Other benefits include:
Conversion from internship to a paid production position
College credit as available through a student’s academic institution
A review of the intern’s resume and portfolio with ETP's team
Invitations to company-wide events with actors, designers and other artists
Engagement with Portland’s vibrant theater scene, including the opportunity to network with Portland theater professionals and other Portland interns through the Portland Area Theatre Alliance Networking Events
The level of responsibility and the ongoing workload of an ever-growing artistic institution require that interns be highly motivated, energetic, and self-reliant. Scheduling is flexible, part-time and about 3 months in duration. School-year internships typically require a minimum availability of 2-3 days per week.
NOTE: theater production resumes for all tech and crew positions are welcome year-round! Email your resume and your desired position to firstname.lastname@example.org.
