Student stage carpenters, riggers, electricians, board operators, and sound technicians are all encouraged to apply for a Technical Internship. Tech interns receive free housing and board, but are responsible for their own festival registration. Interns students assist with the load-ins and strikes of visiting productions and help with the backstage aspects of other festival events as well. It is an opportunity to work in a new-to-you venue with faculty and students from other area colleges. While the work can be hard and, at times, the hours long, interns in years past have described the event as an eye-opening and awesome experience. The tech intern schedule is such that there is still plenty of free time to attend many conference sessions, events, and performances.
Interested students wishing to learn more about this program are encouraged to send their question to James Petty Co-Vice Chair of Design, Technology and Management for Region I at firstname.lastname@example.org.
