Internships at the Arden

The Dr. Mindy Goldberg Rose Internship Fund was founded in 2022 to honor the life of longtime Arden friend Dr. Mindy Goldberg Rose, and her commitment to education, the arts, and making lives better.

About the Program

Over the years, fostering the next generation of theatre professionals through real world experience has been at the center of the Arden’s endeavors. The Goldberg Rose Internship program is designed to offer students and emerging theatre professionals the opportunity to learn new skills while being mentored by experienced theater professionals. This Fund will allow greater access to meaningful experiences, stronger connection to the larger network of theatre professionals and have a resonating impact on our work on stage.

Eligibility and Compensation

Paid internship applications are being accepted now for Arden’s 2022/23 season. Selected participants must be available to participate for a twelve-week period, working up to 20 hours-per-week at a rate of $12/hour. Internships are open to early professionals interested in beginning careers in performing arts management, administration, and/or arts education. Internships may be for credit with a student’s college or university, or for academic purposes with a student’s academic coursework, but credit is not required. Internships are available in the following areas:

  • General Management
  • Production
  • Marketing and Public Relations
  • Development
  • Education

Interns will work with their supervisors to develop a list of learning objectives and goals that they would like to accomplish and are assigned a project to be completed during their time at the Arden.
