Apollo Theater Academy
2018 Summer Internship Program
The Apollo Theater Academy Summer Internship Program provides high school students with opportunities for professional and personal development as they explore managerial and production careers in the performing arts and entertainment industries.
Interns learn about non-performance careers and what takes place behind the scenes at the Apollo Theater. THIS INTERNSHIP WILL NOT TEACH YOU HOW TO BE A PERFORMER. Interns are assigned to work alongside staff members of the Apollo Theater for six weeks in various production departments to learn about lighting design, videography, audio engineering, carpentry and prop creation; interns will also be exposed to careers in arts administration while learning what it takes to produce live shows.
