For all internships:
Facetime Summer Stage Interns will be chosen based on their maturity, dedication and experience in theatre, on stage, and behind the scenes. Duties of each intern will vary based on their own individual strengths/interests. If chosen to be an intern, you will be invited to audition for lead roles and participate in the final production, but your primary duty will be to aid the production staff. You will also be considered a “mentor” to the younger children and teenagers in the camp and will be expected to be a good example to them on the stage and off of the stage.
