ADMINISTRATIVE INTERNSHIPS & STUDENT VOLUNTEERS

Goodspeed Musicals' Administrative Internship & Student Volunteer Programs welcome qualified applicants from colleges and universities. A major goal of the programs is to serve as a training ground for aspiring theatre professionals. These programs offer interns and volunteers experiential learning and networking opportunities, complimentary tickets to Goodspeed productions and productions at other theatres when available, the opportunity to earn college credit through an academic institution, the ability to view archival Goodspeed production footage, regular seminars taught by Goodspeed staff members, meetings with staff members, a tour of Goodspeed facilities, access to the world-renowned Scherer Library of Musical Theatre and educational opportunities tailored to interns’ or volunteers' individual interests. Each administrative department determines hours and commitment for internship and volunteer positions individually. All internships are unpaid.
