Intern Application

Thank you for your interest in the Adirondack Theatre Festival’s internship program for summer 2018.

We begin our intern search in December and aim to have all interns hired by March 1. We will contact you for a phone interview in February if we wish to consider you for an internship. The deadline each year is February 1 unless otherwise stated on the internship landing page. If an internship is already filled, it will be labeled “filled” on the landing page.

2018 will be the Festival’s 24th season of presenting new and contemporary theatre in the Southern Adirondack region of upstate New York. We perform in the 294-seat Charles R. Wood Theater in downtown Glens Falls. The season will consist of four full productions, two cabaret productions, one new play workshop with public reading, and a Dinner Theatre for kids. The dates of the performances will be the last week of June through August 11, and the internships will be from May 28 – August 14.

Free housing is provided for all interns, and there is also a $200 honorarium paid at the conclusion of the season.

ATF offers a leading internship program in the theatre industry. With only ten staff members during the season, the interns are a vital and important part of the Festival who get high-level, hands-on experiences, and therefore must be willing to take initiative and responsibility. The internships are a full-time commitment.

The thirteen internships offered are as follows:

Seven Production Interns. Production interns fulfill technical roles including: wardrobe, carpentry (2), electrics, sound, props, and paint. These seven will assist the Technical Director, Production Manager, and other department heads in these areas.

Two Production Assistants. These interns will work as Assistant Stage Managers on the Festival’s productions, and these positions require some experience in the area of stage management. When not in rehearsals or tech for one of the assigned Production Assistant shows, these interns will assist the Technical Director, Production Manager, and Managing Director in other production and administration duties.

Three Administrative Interns. These interns will assist the Managing Director and Company Manager in administrative areas including Marketing & Development, Artist & Staff Hospitality, and Box Office & Audience Development. All three administrative interns will work front-of-house for all performances and provide concessions and box office assistance. Run crew assignments may also be possible.

One Artistic Administration Intern. This intern will work primarily with the Producing Artistic Director and duties will include assistant directing and administrative work along with assisting the Production Manager. The Artistic Intern may direct the Children’s Dinner Theatre production.
