The ideal candidates should have a unique artistic vision for the stage, possess strong performance abilities, be extremely responsible and have a high level of maturity, and a be a person who is willing to take initiative. Internships are open to high school and college students. Interns receive a stipend.


Each intern will be assigned a specific focus, and will complete tasks in the following areas:

  • Casting: You will assist to administer the auditions, and work with the actors during callbacks.

  • Directing: You will work hands on with the cast, directing selected scenes under the guidance of the director.

  • Management: Tasks might include organizing parent committees, designing t-shirts, leading the stage crew, and more.

  • Rehearsal: Interns will assist at every rehearsal, and may be granted the opportunity to lead a full rehearsal on their own.

  • Technical: Interns will be responsible for working with other BAM employees in engineering the technical aspects of the production. This could include lights, sound, hiring a stage crew, etc.

"The internship program at BAM was an invaluable experience for me, both as a performer, and as someone who will be preparing to enter the workforce soon. It was really great to be given a manageable amount of responsibility, and to feel like my opinion and ideas really mattered! I learned a lot more about the artistic process that goes along with putting on a show, and what it is like to be behind the curtain. Thanks BAM!"
