Each intern will have a different time commitment depending on which type of job they’ll be doing within the theater, but overall, interns should expect to commit to at least one shift per week for eight consecutive weeks in order to maintain their internship.
Every individual who completes an internship will be awarded either an 8-week class of their choice, as long as the chosen course is not already sold out. Interns must complete their internship requirements before being allowed to enroll in a class.
At this time, DCC is unable to offer monetary, housing, and/or travel compensation.
The short answer is, it depends on the internship! Club Internships are open to anyone, and previous experience is a plus but not required. This is a great opportunity to have a hands-on, behind-the-scenes theater experience. We will teach you everything you need to know! Specialty Internships (such as photography) may require specific skill sets, but we still encourage you to apply for any and all internships that interest you. In some cases we may be able to provide on-the-job training. So don’t be shy! Apply for anything that interests you.
Theater employment is not guaranteed following an internship. Individuals who intern with us will always have an opportunity to continue their education. We want to curate a community of growth within our theater and support the advancement of our community members should they continue to seek it, though it can not be guaranteed.
The office, or rather the theater, is a business casual, creative environment. We encourage interns to join our community with a sense of joy, enthusiasm, and authenticity that they’d bring to a new group of friends. We accept all individuals, regardless of sexual orientation, race, or gender identity, and we understand that there is never a ‘one size fits all’ that can cover the needs and expectations of any individual who decides to intern with us. We pride ourselves on having an open door policy and we want nothing more than to establish an environment where our staff and community feel completely safe. We encourage interns to speak with the administration should there ever be a moment they feel unsafe or unsupported while working.
