In addition to general management duties, the Intern may have the opportunity to learn about Development and work on the planning, production and fundraising of the annual Gala in May. This is an excellent opportunity for someone who wants to learn how to produce a show from the ground up, including learning about early stage fundraising, development, budgeting and contracting for works-in-progress as well as productions. It is also a great opportunity to develop skills in a presenting organization that is big enough to support works in a variety of genres (dance, theatre, puppetry, visual art), but small enough to really get involved.
