Do you see yourself as a mentor? Do you want to put your office skills to the test? If you answered yes to either of these questions, the First Stage Theater Academy Internship program is for you!

  • Classroom Interns: Interns serve as a role model, guide, mentor and teacher's assistant. Once classes begin, teachers and students count on our interns and look forward to seeing them each week. All classes meet during our normal Academy hours.
  • Office Assistant: An intern may serve as an assistant in the Academy Office, answering the telephone, taking attendance, light customer service, filing paperwork, making copies, compiling data, delivering messages, etc.
