Internships

Washington Revels offers internship opportunities for high school and college students throughout the year to assist with general office work and special projects. Our team of interns has the opportunity to observer firsthand how a small, non-profit theater company functions behind the scenes, to learn key office management skills, and to and to manage and maintain content on Revels’ current marketing and social media channels. Opportunities and schedule will be determined by the student in conjunction with the Volunteer & Education Manager. All responsibilities will be based on interest and experience. Schedules should generally average a minimum of 8 hours per week but can be flexible depending on the needs of the student. Positions are unpaid but can potentially fulfill community service or credit requirements.

All internships are VIRTUAL through August 2021, though some projects may require interns to pick up items from the Washington Revels office. Decisions about potential in-person internships for Fall 2021 will be made at a later date.
