“I had an incredible experience as an intern for the summer camps at Spartanburg Youth Theatre. I was able to learn about the process of creating curriculum for camps/classes and the organizational work that goes into making a theatre run smoothly. Additionally, I had the opportunity to assist with some of the summer camps, which was an awesome chance to see how different age groups are taught about theatre. I had so much fun as an intern at SYT, and I feel that this experience will truly help me as I continue my career in theatre.” 

- Joanna Burgess

“Being an SYT intern was one of the best experiences to have as a theatre student. It expanded not only my knowledge of theatre, but also introduced the world of theatre business. I was able to see the planning that goes into a season of shows and classes, how decisions are made, and how much care goes into making SYT run with care and fun. During this internship I had the opportunity to work on creative projects with several instructors and assist in many of the camps. This allowed me to see how different directors and instructors work behind the scenes in order to create amazing productions. This was a really fun experience and I highly recommend this opportunity to anyone who is passionate about theatre production and management.”

EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES

“Being able to be an SYT summer intern has been incredibly beneficial to my growth as a theatre student. I have been able to acquire an array of knowledge about the inner workings of a children’s theatre that I never imagined needing. Some things that you can truly benefit from when working towards a career in the arts can simply not be taught in a classroom setting. This is an excellent opportunity to provide yourself with a foundation of skills to build upon for your future success in the field that you love.”
