Current Openings:


The Hippodrome Theatre’s internship program offers college students and recent graduates hands-on experience in the region’s premier professional theatre and cultural center. Interns will be able to funnel their passion for the arts into tangible outcomes, helping the Hippodrome continue to bring its patrons the best live theatre, cinema and rental experiences in Gainesville.

Interns will have the opportunity to work closely with our staff and guest artists, where they will gain valuable insight into how a non-profit arts organization functions. Your professional growth is important to us, and our team gives constructive feedback, offers interns the opportunity to develop their own projects and is focused on making plans come to fruition. If you’re ready to get to work (and have fun!), consider joining our team.
