Thinking of a Theatre Internship in 2018?

  • Internships can happen any time over the year (Summer or Winter included)
  • The best way to think about an internship is to identify the kind of learning you want and the kind of host you want to work with
  • You cannot enrol in this unit via WES so contact the unit coordinator with an idea or a proposal 
  • We will list some internship opportunities here, but we encourage you to identify your own and follow up on them
  • Once you are ready to approach a host organisation, get your CV in order and craft and expression if interest (see guide and sample below) and get in touch with the unit coordinator

Look over the unit guide and material attached for more information

Some observations from 2017 Education Intern Chloe Smith:


Prompt brings students and teachers together with experienced industry professionals. As a prospective VCE Drama and Theatre Studies teacher, this internship was very valuable. I had the opportunity to work behind the scenes on the 2017 production of The Real and Imagined History of the Elephant Man. I co-created the extensive 60page student/teacher resource for the VCE playlisted production.

My roles and responsibilities throughout the internship in the education department included:

  • Observing rehearsals (focusing on actor/audience relationship, characterization, gestures etc. – through a VCE Curriculum lens)
  • Writing contextual information of Prompt Pack (Industrial Revolution, Joseph Merrick etc.)
  • Writing about past representations of The Elephant Man
  • Brainstorming questions for cast/creative video interviews
  • Transcribing/video logging/time stamping interviews for  video editor
  • Collating the copy (table of contents)
  • Liaising with producer, box office, marketing and design teams
  • Editing/proofing the copy (15,000+ words)
  • Attending Malthouse VCE Design Presentations
