ABOUT CFRT’S INTERNSHIP PROGRAM
CFRT’s Internship Program offers internships which are designed to give high school & college students from Fayetteville and its surrounding areas a serious and intensive experience in the field of technical theatre. Applicants are expected to be self-motivated, committed, and willing to learn a vast set of theatrical skills. Primary internship activities include practical experience with and classes on sound, lighting, set, properties, running crew, and stage management. Additional opportunities are also available in such departments as Education and Outreach, Marketing, and Office Management.
In CFRT’s Internship Program, you will discover within yourself new talents; engage in hands-on training with professional artists not only from Fayetteville and the surrounding region, but also New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago; and receive professional training ahead of your peers.
WHY IS AN INTERNSHIP IMPORTANT?
Internships are an extremely valuable experience that you can include on any college application or professional resume. Internships inform your professional and academic communities that you are dedicated and willing to devote extra time to learning and perfecting your craft.
Qualified applicants should be current high school or college students or recent graduates who possess a strong desire to continue their focus in professional theatre.
Interns will be required to attend enrichment sessions and work nights that focus on various departments of the theatre throughout the season. These sessions are mandatory to the program. Second and Third Year interns are still required to attend these sessions, during which their skill set will only expand and they may be called upon to assist in demonstrations.
CFRT’s 2023-2024 season will include 5 mainstage productions plus our annual holiday production, The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. Interns are required to complete production assignments on 3 of the 6 productions but are encouraged to work on as many productions as possible to fully maximize the learning experience. An intern may not miss more than two consecutive productions.
