Professional theater of the Great Western Catskills!

Our Intern Program

FSC’s Intern Program is integral to our mission. Each year at FSC, interns (aged 16 and up) benefit from the creative and collaborative experience that FSC offers, honing a variety of skills and taking on major responsibilities with commitment and diligence. Working side by side with professionals, FSC’s interns have the opportunity to learn skills, make connections, and hear from those working in the industry every day. It is a testament to the mutual appreciation of this shared adventure that our interns return summer after summer to help make FSC’s season a reality. We couldn’t produce great theater without them!
