Region 1 / Festival 50

Western Connecticut State University
January 30th - February 4th, 2018

Tech Intern Program

Student stage carpenters, riggers, electricians, board operators, and sound technicians are all encouraged to apply for a position on the festival’s tech intern roster. Tech interns receive free housing and board. Please note: tech interns must have paid registration to festival to participate. These students assist with the load-ins and strikes of visiting productions and help with the backstage aspects of other festival events as well. It is an opportunity to work in a new-to-you venue with faculty and students from other area colleges. While the work can be hard, and at times, the hours long, interns in years past have described the event as an eye-opening and awesome experience. The tech intern schedule is such that there is still plenty of free time to attend many conference sessions, events, and performances.

Interested students wishing to learn more about this program are encouraged to send their question to
James Petty 2nd Co-Vice Chair of Design, Technology and Management for Region I at jamespetty@gmail.com. Students wishing to be considered for this opportunity should send an updated resume and a letter of recommendation from a sponsoring faculty member to this same email address by December 15, 2016.
