Ten Production Interns work with the Production Staff, learning and gaining experience through Festival set-up, company load-ins, and show-operating positions in two indoor theatres, an outdoor stage, and four studios.
During the first three weeks of the internship, Production Interns open and clean the theatres and studios, install complete lighting and sound systems, lay multiple dance floors, and hang repertory soft goods. During this pre-season period, the Production Department is instrumental in preparing the Festival grounds for public access. Production Interns and Staff participate in a variety of campus-wide projects and tasks to create the atmosphere for which Jacob’s Pillow is so well-known. During company load-ins, general jobs include hanging and focusing lights, laying dance floors, assembling scenery, maintaining wardrobe, and the loading and unloading of trucks alongside visiting companies.
