Internships offer enriching, career-broadening experiences for qualified college students, recent graduates and young professionals. Interns with the Mississippi Bend Players can gain experience in costumes, lighting, properties, sound, stage management, scenic construction, ticket office or wigs and makeup.
Summer internship contracts run from late May to early August. Interns’ daily work schedule is varied depending on the needs of the productions. Interns earn a $2,000 stipend and housing is available. Augustana College students also may also use their Augie Choice funds to customize their own internship with the Mississippi Bend Players.
