SUMMER INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

BAM's Internship Program provides high school and college level students the opportunity to get hands on experience in Directing, Management, Design, Education, and more! Interning with BAM is a wonderful way for students to get involved on the creative side of this theatre organization, and many internships lead to bigger opportunities within the company in subsequent seasons. In fact, the majority of our staff today first began their BAM involvement as students and interns at BAMtheatre!

BAM also offers a Summer Apprenticeship position. Please see below for more information on this summer long position that will focus on producing, management, and marketing for theatre!

NEW for Summer 2021 - BAM is excited to introduce its Junior Performance Internship program for middle school students eager to get started in teaching and directing. Junior Internships are only offered through the Broadway Workshop Series summer camp program.

Internship Applications are OPEN NOW!

Broadway Workshop Series (Summer Camps)

 

Two Intern positions are available for each BWS camp session. Interns assist with the direction and management of each BWS camp rehearsal day, as well as the final performance.

Intern positions are available to high school and college students. Interns receive a stipend or a partial scholarship to put towards tuition for another BAM program.

NEW - Several Junior Performance Intern positions are also available for each BWS camp session. Junior Performance Interns are open to middle school students (entering 6th, 7th, 8th, or 9th grade in the fall). Junior Interns will assist with teaching and management throughout the week and then perform alongside the campers for the final performance. These are volunteer positions.
