Illuminate Interns

Interns learn all about directing, teaching, design, and more while developing leadership skills through hands on learning working directly with instructors, staff, and students.

Interns 2023

Interns are the cornerstone of illuminate. Whether designing props for a show, assisting with a dance class, putting together a Show's Playbill, or even directing a MainStage production, the opportunities for student leadership are everywhere. Internships help develop skills in collaboration, communication, and management as interns inspire the next generation.


Students ages 12-18 are encouraged to apply, and will be notified of their assignments before the semester begins. Interns are awarded "intern bucks" towards future classes with illuminate.

"The coaches, teachers, staff, and all the kids at illuminate have pushed me in ways that I’m not sure anyone else could have. But they didn’t just push me- they supported me as I tried new things- things I was scared to do and sometimes didn’t think I could do. There is no way that I can explain with words how much illuminate has helped me grow."

"In my years with Illuminate I've been in 4 musicals, 2 summer workshops and 4 plays.  I've stage managed, inturned, and directed. I've become a captain of Serve Up, our service outreach group. I've grown as a leader, a teacher and a person in my time with illuminate, and i know that i'm not the only one who feels like this, almost everyone that i've seen graduate has come back to teach, or visit or come watch shows"

"Interning at illuminate was an overall great experience because I learned how to be a team player,  and how to better teach and communicate with kids. It was also really great to get a backstage view of all that goes into teaching and making a performance happen. After interning, I feel like I've gained some of the skills I need to pursue teaching."
