Burning Coal Theatre Company can create two kinds of internships (see below). Both include Arts Administration. Other possible areas of learning include technical theatre, acting, directing, stage managing or a combination of the above. Those interested in working in an intern relationship with Burning Coal should forward an email indicating your area of interest, availability (dates and times of day), and a resume, if you have one. We will call you to set up an interview. Internships are not paid, though housing may be available.

Season-long Internships

Season-long internships occur during our production season (approximately August through May) and will include components related to our mainstage programming (assistant directing, assistant stage management, assisting designers and in some cases performance opportunities). 

Summer Internships

Summer internships are focused on arts management and are specifically for young people who want to learn about the theatre inside-out, do a little bit of everything, and see what it really takes to make a nonprofit theatre run.  They do not typically include acting, directing or design-related components, though it may be possible to incorporate some elements into your internship.  Over the summer, we do not produce on our mainstage or second stage, so don’t have that option.  Tasks may include grant writing, database administration, social media work, advertising sales, graphic design, facilities management and things of that nature.  Production focus related to our KidsWrite Festival and our Summer Theatre Conservatories may be included.
