MYT INTERNSHIP PROGRAM
The MYT Internship program is designed to give college and older high school students the opportunity to experiment with the artistic and technical aspects of a full-scale theater production. By working side by side with professional artists, students experience the myriad of ‘backstage’ tasks that go into creating the stage and background for the performing artist.
MYT emphasizes the interdisciplinary nature of theater. The internship program gives students interested in the artistic and technical aspects of theater a chance to work with students to create a musical theater production. Interns will also get the opportunity to assist in teaching younger children as well as learning the organizational skills that the mentor teachers use to plan their program. Interns will learn about problem solving, budgets, shopping for materials, teaching at different age levels, and collaborating with other artists. These skills will be invaluable to young people looking towards careers as teachers, performers, or artists.
Interns will learn about several aspects of theater, including:
- Theater, movement, and digital storytelling assistant
- Set design and construction
- Scene painting
- Prop design and construction
- Costume design and construction
- Sound and lights: design, set up and running
- Stage management
- Production assistant
