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.
