Get hands-on experience working with everything that goes into a successful theatre production, such as lighting, scenery, props, and wardrobe. You might even have a chance to apply those skills to a variety of productions, from local community theatre to national tours. If you're more interested in the business side of theatre, internships can provide additional opportunities such as how marketing promotes upcoming shows and organizes special events, or how the theatre's day-to-day operations are managed.


You can work on Elmira College's theatre productions and events as part of your coursework, either through a paid federal or college work study program or FEX volunteer community service program (opportunities listed on MyEC). Construct and decorate scenery, set up and test lighting and sound systems as part of a work study, or manage the stage, design and operate sound and lighting, or handle publicity as a volunteer.  


You can learn more about related community engagement and on-campus employment opportunities in MyEC through the Job Postings and Community Engagement options under the Student Tab. For internship opportunities, visit EC Handshake or Elmira College AlumniFire. For additional help exploring opportunities, contact the Office of Career Services.
