Q: What internships do you offer?
A: Internships for which we are accepting applications are listed under CURRENT OPENINGS. Internships routinely offered at the Hippodrome include the following: Arts Administration, ASM, Cinema, Company Management, Costumes, Development, Education, IT, Lighting, Marketing, Production, Props, Public Relations, and Sound.
Q: Are Hippodrome interns paid?
A: Yes, our full-time production interns are paid. Although we are a not-for-profit theatre, we do provide small weekly stipends to our full-time interns to help offset living expenses.
Q: Can I be an intern and also hold an outside job?
A: The demands of a full-time Hippodrome internship make it very difficult (if not impossible) to hold an outside job at the same time. Full-time interns and part-time interns who are also enrolled in college classes are strongly discouraged from having outside employment.
Q: Does the Hippodrome provide housing for interns?
A: The Hippodrome has limited housing availability (typically apartments shared with 1-2 other interns). Housing is given first to actors, and then to full-time interns. Housing is not available for part-time interns.
Q: What about transportation?
A: Having your own car is required for most marketing assignments, as they require travel around the Gainesville area. Full-time interns must have their own transportation to get themselves to and from the theatre.
Q: How do I know if I’m eligible for a Hippodrome internship?
A: Review the individual internship descriptions. If you are at least 18 years of age and meet the education and skill requirements of a posted internship, you are welcome to apply.
Q: What are the application deadlines?
A: Applications are accepted until a position is filled. Applications are reviewed in the order in which they were received. It is recommended that applicants apply as soon as openings are posted.
