ADMINISTRATIVE / STAFF POSITION:

College (Unpaid) Internships 

(Fall 2017 & Spring 2018 Semesters)

We appreciate every opportunity to supplement our administrative staff with “for-credit” college interns who are interested in a meaningful internship experience that will provide valuable exposure to the areas of Marketing, Finance, Box Office, Development, Concert production, Operations and more. Utilizing the time, talent and energy of college interns helps maximize our productivity and keep our overhead costs low. Currently, we are interviewing intern candidates for the upcoming Fall 2017 & Winter 2017/2018 semesters. We have the capacity to host up to two interns per semester and during summer break. Please note that these are "for-credit" internships, which are designed to supplement the intern's college curriculum, and are therefore unpaid. We do accept interns who are not taking on an internship in exchange for college credit, but rather as a way to supplement their academic experience.
