Repertory Company Theatre’s Internship Program offers a rich and challenging experience for qualified high school, college students who are preparing for careers in professional theater. Interns can refine their practical and critical thinking skills through close interaction with production staff and artists. Because RCT functions with a relatively small staff, interns are valuable additions to our staff. Student interns will be expected to organize their time well, communicate efficiently and appropriately with others, respond to requests in a timely manner, stay focused, and present themselves in a professional and focused manner at all activities.
