Professional theater of the Great Western Catskills!

Theater Intern

Each year at FSC, interns have the opportunity for creative and collaborative experience, honing a variety of skills and taking on responsibilities with commitment and diligence. Working side by side with professionals, FSC’s interns learn skills, make connections, and interact with those working in the industry every day.

FSC’s Theater Interns assist the Artistic Director, Stage Manager, General Manager, and Resident Designer/Technical Director in the day-to-day functioning of the Theater and in production of shows for the summer season.
