SFMT's Internship program provides exciting opportunities for college students and recent graduates to gain hands-on experience in several areas of theater production. We provide students with a wide range of production experiences that will enhance their options as theater practitioners. An SFMT internship may be of particular interest to those seeking an intensive experience in the process of producing original new works. All prospective summer interns should also consider applying for the Troupe's Summer Workshop which will both enhance and reinforce your summer experience.
An internship with the Mime Troupe offers unique insight into a collectively-run organization producing socially-conscious, issue-driven theater. Since our performances are free and held in public parks, interns have a chance to work with diverse audiences in a multitude of environments - emphasizing teamwork and creative problem solving - and to participate in the realization of the mission and goals of the company.
The Mime Troupe offers a variety of internships, both full and part-time; the actual hours and duties will be finalized with your internship acceptance. To inquire about administrative support during non-production months (October thru April) please email the General Manager. To inquire about Youth Theater internships (Nov-April) please email the YTP Project Director. The bulk of our internships occur during the summer months (May-September). For a complete list of summer internships, see below.
