Student Internship Program

Childsplay’s Internship Program gives teens ages 14-18 leadership opportunities in the theatre and classroom setting in assistance to our programs. We utilize interns in a meaningful way for both the intern and Childsplay Academy.

At this time, the application is closed. During the school year, interns may participat in our YETi program where they will work alongside theatre professional to run and produce two productions each season.



Interns assist professional teaching artists by encouraging students to participate or helping guide them in activities, scenes, or choreography. An intern may be a Hogwarts Potions Professor, assistant director, arts and crafts specialist or even a Secret Agent. Interns also support the Academy Admin team preparing scripts, gathering supplies, and organizing materials for class. Student-Interns will also recieve mentornship and training throughout the week with regular oppurtunities to take part in leadership.
