Rude Mechs Offer Theatre Internships in Austin to University Students
Applications Open for University Student Internships in Austin, Texas
Rude Mechs is proud to serve as the Resident Theatre Company for the University of Texas Department of Theatre and Dance. For more information about UT's Theatre and Dance Department, visit jointhedrama.org. Through this innovative partnership of a renowned Tier 1 research university and Rude Mechs, a generation of new undergraduate and graduate students will gain a unique perspective on collectively devising new plays and managing a mid-size theatre.
The fall internship begins September 15th and the application form is available here.
If you aren't familiar with our company, please take a few minutes to browse our website www.rudemechs.com - look at our mission, our past productions, our programming.
Our goal is to provide you with opportunities to either work or observe work in your area of interest, should your interest align with our schedule and projects this semester. We will not ask you to perform volunteer duties that do not build your desired skill set. (For example, if you are interested in learning arts administration, we will not ask you to perform in our next play for free, but we might ask you to help archive our marketing materials or create a production budget.)
It is our expectation that you will commit 48 hours (approximately 4 hours per week) to Rude Mechs to complete your internship during the semester.
Your internship will span roughly 12 weeks beginning September 15 th and end December 15 th , 2013. We will never ask you for more than 10 hours in a given week.
Please know that we also accept internships from students around the country, so feel free to use this application to let us know you are interested in spending some time down here with us.
