Alley Theatre Internships provide hands-on professional training for those planning to pursue careers in professional theatre, arts administration or non-profit marketing and management. Available for current students and recent college graduates, internships are educational opportunities that supplement a strong theatre education and act as a bridge for early career professionals. Interns participate in and observe a professional theatre environment - guided and directed by experienced managers and directors - and are entrusted with a great deal of responsibility.

During the 2018-2019 season, 43 interns worked closely with Alley staff, artists and craftspeople to increase their skill-set, sharpen their business acumen, and learn instrumental theatre techniques and gain professional experiences in the theatre industry.

The Alley offers both part-time and full-time, paid and unpaid internships based on departmental capacity and intern availability. The Alley is not able to provide assistance with transportation or housing.

"This internship was a great outlet for me to make professional connections and explore all the areas of theatre I'm interested in. I've gained more knowledge about what it takes to make an arts organization run than I ever thought I would at such a young age."
