Please visit the Professional Internship Program page here if you are looking to work with us full-time.
All summer internships have been filled for summer of 2013. If you would like to apply to be a Part-Time Intern during the 2013-14 Season at CENTERSTAGE, please submit your application in August of 2013.
CENTERSTAGE’s Part-Time/Summer Internships provide hands-on experience for students currently enrolled in middle school, high school, or college who are interested in exploring theater as a career. Each internship is designed around the student’s interests by providing real-life experience working alongside theater professionals in nearly every department of the theater.
CENTERSTAGE will work with each individual student to determine an appropriate curriculum, schedule, and department to work with based on the experience and interests of the student and the needs of each CENTERSTAGE department. Computer literacy is required for administrative positions.
Applications are accepted year round; most internships areas are available during the season (September-June). During the off-season (June-August), only administrative internships are available.
Part-Time/Summer Internships are unpaid and CENTERSTAGE does not provide housing to participants. In some instances, students can receive academic credit for an internship. CENTERSTAGE will work with the intern to meet his or her school’s credit requirements; however, the intern is ultimately responsible for those arrangements.
Interns may be placed in one or more of the following departments:
Community Programs & Education
Marketing & Communication

High school and university journalists, through journalism classes or through student newspapers, are invited to attend and review an opening night or preview night performance of any production at CENTERSTAGE.
Student journalists receive complimentary tickets and have the opportunity to meet local press who review the show alongside them. Once the student's review is published in school publications, CENTERSTAGE encourages schools to submit the clipping or online link to be posted on our website. Reviews share space with journalists from organizations such as City Paper and The Baltimore Sun. We strongly encourage supporting the art of theater criticism, regardless of a student-journalist’s eventual path in the media industry.
Contact Public Relations Manager Heather Jackson by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 410.986.4016 for more information or to RSVP to a press night. Specific dates available to students for the 2013-14 Season will be posted in fall 2013.
Please note: complimentary press tickets are based on availability.
Encounter aligns itself with national service initiatives around the country to train young adults and teens as artists working in public service. The ensemble-based performance program is also a leadership training program. For Encounter, playwriting and performance work demand both leadership skills and a desire to be of service to the community.
Our unique collaborative process weaves the stories of students from across the state of Maryland together into one play. During the first half of the season, teens work together to develop a creative community while writing their play. The second half of the season focuses on performance. Encounter students are guided through a unique performance training process that develops their own distinctive presence and style. Students are trained as individual thinkers and innovators. The training, both physical and contemplative, draws on the principles of varied training methods and physical disciplines. The program culminates in a fully staged final production of the play in late April.
How Do I Participate?
Encounter will be accepting new participants in fall 2013.

There is a program fee of $200. This fee may be paid in installments and scholarships are available here. Community service credit hours are also available. For more information, call the Department of Community Programs and Education at 410.986.4050 or e-mail email@example.com.
How’s it work?
Participants in the program directly aid in the marketing of each CENTERSTAGE Classic Series shows. College Ambassadors are asked to commit at least one full semester to CENTERSTAGE. No in-office assistance is necessary and there will be no in-person meetings. CENTERSTAGE will send marketing materials to you, both via snail mail and digitally. Materials will arrive on the day of each show’s first preview. Take these materials and share them with your campus community: your theater classes, your friends, clubs, organizations, you name it. If you think there is a group of people that will have a connection with the current show, share this information with them!
What marketing materials will I get?
Materials that will be sent to you will be determined on a show-by-show basis. You will always receive show branding information. This is not to distribute, but will help you understand each show and its target audience. Other materials may include but are not limited to season brochures, information on student programs/special ticket discounts (GO Pass, College 6-Packs, Student Journalist Program), show-specific postcards/posters, vouchers for complimentary tickets, and other information sent electronically.
What’s in it for me?
For your participation in this program, CENTERSTAGE will provide you with a CENTERSTAGE GO Pass. The CENTERSTAGE GO Pass is a unique season pass just for those ages 18-34. The GO Pass gets you into every CENTERSTAGE Classic Series show for the 2012-13 Season. More information on how to use a GO Pass will be sent once you have signed up to participate as an ambassador.
This experience is also an educational one. By participating, you will learn how CENTERSTAGE markets its shows to target audiences and the work that must go into doing so. Students can receive academic credit for being a College Ambassador. CENTERSTAGE will work with you to meet your school’s credit requirements, but you will be ultimately responsible for these arrangements.
How do I get involved?
More information on the College Ambassador program for the 2013-14 Season will be posted in fall 2013.
