Theatre Gargantua is seeking TWO interns who are serious and committed to pursuing a career in the performing arts. Our internship program is designed to provide an opportunity for emerging artists to expand their skills and experience through observing and participating in Theatre Gargantua’s creation cycle. Specifically, participants will attend all rehearsal and creative meetings while simultaneously assisting in areas of production (e.g. set, lighting, costumes, stage management, and director assistance) and administration (e.g. publicity, marketing and promotion). Through this program, interns will develop new skills that will be useful in future artistic and producing endeavours.
The internship will begin in May and continue through performances of the first installment of our latest cycle of work at Theatre Passe Muraille this fall. This position is full time during rehearsals and production (approximately 2 weeks in May and 8 weeks in the fall) with part-time commitments in between.
Successful applicants will have a background in theatre and an interest in multi-disciplinary work and/or the collaborative creation process. Applicants should be prepared to make a commitment to the full length of the project, including attendance at all rehearsals and performances and for all creative meetings. Interns will receive an honorarium for their participation.
Please send a resume and cover letter detailing your interest in the program and the company as it relates to your future career aspirations.
Please send application to firstname.lastname@example.org citing “Artistic Internship” in the subject line (no phone calls please.)
The deadline to submit applications is Monday May 5, 2014 at 5pm.
