Professional Summer Internship Program
PROFESSIONAL SUMMER PRODUCTION INTERNSHIP
WaterTower Theatre, the professional theatre of Addison, Texas, seeks one intern in the emphasis of Stage Carpentry. WTT’s internship program offers intense, hands-on educational opportunities for current college students and early career professionals. While interns are assigned specific departments and mentors, they are also expected to work outside their chosen area of expertise. A well-rounded experience and networking opportunities, along with seminars by the WTT staff, supplement the modest summer season stipends listed below.
Commitments are full time and the daily schedule will vary throughout the summer. WTT does not offer performing internships.
Applicants must be at least 18 years of age, have prior theatre experience (school counts) and provide your own housing and transportation. Please email your resume with contact information for three references and a statement explaining your qualifications and interest in your chosen internship emphasis to: Luisa Torres, Production Manager, LTorres@watertowertheatre.org.
WTT Producing Artistic Director Terry Martin leads classes in the Meisner Technique for area actors. The Meisner Technique provides a step-by-step technical approach to the problems the actor faces in presenting the subtleties and delicate complexities of human emotional relationships and situations inherent in a playwright's text. The 12-week program meets once per week. Martin trained under both Sanford Meisner and Meisner protégé Fred Kareman before relocating to Dallas.

Student Rush Tickets
Many students at the high school and college levels are required to see outside performances as a part of their curriculum. While it is not always possible for teachers to put together student groups, rush tickets are an affordable way for students to fulfill this requirement. Fifteen minutes prior to curtain, the best available seats are made available to students with a valid ID for only $12 each.
