Internships begin mid-May and end around April of the next year, although they can run longer depending on a variety of circumstances. The duties of a full-season intern depend on the needs of his or her department. The number of interns hired for a season, as well as their distribution among departments, may change yearly depending on our technical and casting needs.

Work weeks are typically 60 hours and sometime longer during opening weeks but there is always at least one day off each week.
