Nestled outdoors in Topanga Canyon, Theatricum produces a 6-month Repertory Season, 16-week Family Fundays series and other special performances each summer/fall. In addition to the performances, Theatricum offers education programs for all ages through its private Academy of the Classics and School Programs.
The Arts Education Assistant will assist the Education Director and various Program Managers through the completion of five summer programs serving students of all ages. This is a unique and extremely valuable opportunity to gain experience, training, and expertise in arts education, and arts education administration. At the completion of this internship, the Arts Education Assistant will have gained marketable skills in an aspect of the arts where the opportunity for paid employment grows annually.
Theatricum’s Arts Education Assistant will have a fervor for the arts, a passion for arts education, and enjoy the outdoors. The ideal candidate will have facility with basic computer software: Word, Excel, Outlook, etc. and be extremely comfortable engaging with children. Candidate must have a vehicle, driver’s license, and up to date insurance and will be required to pass a background check.
Experience with or knowledge of Shakespeare or music education is a plus but is not required. As long as the Intern has a passion for arts education, we can provide the training.
A successful intern at Theatricum is self-motivated, a self-starter, and dedicated with an extremely high work ethic. Follow-through and efficiency are critical as is the ability to focus amidst a great deal of activity. Theatricum’s energetic, communal work environment should be an asset rather than a distraction. The intern will be available for day, evening, weekday and weekend hours (no more than 40 hrs/wk).
