Lifeline's Internships are designed to provide students and young professionals with a well-rounded experience working at a professional not-for-profit theatre company.

The benefits to the intern include working with a team of professionals who care deeply about producing quality theatre adaptations, arts education, and community involvement. The selection of assignments and projects within our various departments will vary depending on the specific internship (see below).

All internships are unpaid; however, interns will receive complimentary tickets to each Lifeline production. Interns are able to receive class credit through this internship, but housing is not provided.

Applicants must be current college sophomores, juniors, seniors, or recent graduates.
