Teen Internships

The goal of ACT’s internship program is to give teens ages 14-18 leadership opportunities in the theatre and classroom setting in assistance to ACT’s programs. We want the internship to be beneficial to both the student and ACT!

We are no longer accepting applications for Summer 2024. Please check in again before our Fall Session. 

What you’d do:
Interns will assist ACT’s professional teaching artists by encouraging students to participate or helping guide them in warm ups, activities/games, and possibly scenes or choreography. Interns will also support the ACT admin team by preparing scripts, gathering supplies and materials for class, crafting costume/set pieces, and assisting with tech/backstage during class performances.

 Awesome reasons to intern with ACT:
★Work alongside professional actors, directors, choreographers, and instructors.
★Get valuable teaching artist training and mentoring.
★Add experience to your resume and satisfy your volunteer hours requirement.
★Be a role model for young actors and share what you’ve learned in theatre.
★Discounted tuition for your own ACT class/camp (see below).

Time Commitment:
As a volunteer intern, you can work the hours and weeks that best fit your schedule. When you fill out your application, you’ll have the option to select the time frames that work for you in assistance to our camps.

Discount and other perks:
★For every two classes (or equivalent) of volunteering, interns will receive $100 off of class tuition for any ACT program. 2 classes of volunteering = $100 discount; 4 classes of volunteering = $200 discount; 6 classes of volunteering = $300 discount, etc.
★One pass for all mainstage shows of SLO REP’s 2024/25 season
★An ACT t-shirt!
