A Dragon Internship is a great way to learn the ropes of a live theatre company from every angle and get your foot in the door at a company with connections all over the Bay Area. Whether you’re looking to learn about arts administration, how a grass roots company uses social media and other marketing to reach it’s goals, or how individual shows are taken from concept to creation, our internship program is right for you. There are two tracks an intern at Dragon can follow:
The administrative track focuses on nonprofit arts management with an emphasis on marketing and customer service. Applicants interested in business management, graphic/print design, box office administration, marketing, business writing, web design/HTML and customer service should follow this track.
The production track focuses on the day to day operations of the Dragon facility with an emphasis on the process of producing our full season of shows. Applicants interested in acting, directing, set, costume, light, sound and props design as well as stage management and production management should follow this track.
