Overview

The Hippodrome Theatre’s Internship Program offers hands-on experience in the region’s premier professional theatre and cultural center.

Interns work closely with our staff and guest artists. Each intern is responsible for accomplishing goals set by his/her departmental supervisor. Many departments at the Hipp include project-based activities, providing our interns with opportunities to work independently and see their efforts come to fruition.
