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 2015-2016 season, 26 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.
