INTERNSHIP OPENINGS

AUDIENCE DEVELOPMENT INTERNSHIP

 

The Audience Development Internship with Circle Theatre offers a multi-faceted, hands-on experience with an organization that has a 68-year history in the theatre arts community. Opportunities will be project and event-based highlighting the responsibilities that will be shared in each specific department/area of programming. 

Former Audience Development Interns may still be in school pursuing their education, and some are area professionals. This is what they had to say about their experience:

“Working so closely with the Circle staff inspired and encouraged my passion for arts administration. Not only was my voice wanted, it was valued and expected in creative and administrative meetings, development, and decisions.The mentorship I received from all the staff still motivates me today.” 

– Rachel Varley, Grand Rapids Civic Theatre Curriculum Coordinator, 2016 Intern

“The Audience Development Internship with Circle Theatre was one of the most influential experiences of my life. Not only did I create and accomplish detailed projects, but I also gained lasting connections with the huge Grand Rapids theatre community.”

-Mia Van Erp, Hope College Student, 2018 Intern

“Interning at Circle changed the trajectory of my entire life and career. Before Circle, I was looking at going into Performance and/or Education, however, I walked out fully confident that I belonged in Theatre Administration. The experience was incredible and I’m grateful for it everyday as I study what I love.”

– Marcus Chapman, Grand Valley State University Student, 2018 Intern
