This summer marks the third year for the Fishtank's Internship Program. The exciting program has offered each intern the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in a professional environment. The program allows students to work side by side with Fishtank Resident Artists & staff. Interns have worked on projects ranging from researching programming ideas to learning the ins and outs of concession sales during a play in the window on a randomly cold weekend in October!
“Interns have worked in every facet of Fishtank operations, gaining knowledge and experience that will certainly benefit them throughout their careers,” says Heidi Van, Curator of the Fishtank.
The Fishtank’s Internship program started in 2012 in Production, Playwriting and Marketing. 2013 was the summer of the "FISHTERNS." 5 college students from KU, K-State and UMKC took the scene by appearing weekly in the SUMMER SHORTS, appearing in the KC FRINGE HIT - An Adult Evening of Shel Silverstein, and being all around gems!
Available positions are Fishtank Acting Apprentice/Intern, Production Interns, Design Interns and Assistant to the Producer.
