Summer 2023 Internships

Our summer internship application deadline has now passed. We will now only be considering new applicants on an as-needed basis, and new applicants are not guaranteed a placement.


If you are still interested in applying, please email our Intern Coordinator Lizzie Chapman at with your summer availability.

About Summer Internship Program

Portola Valley Theatre Conservatory's high school internship program provides invaluable artistic training to young theatre makers, building a sense of community that will remain foundational long after the end of summer. We offer opportunities to experience the inner-workings of theatre production from every angle. Each of our internships includes a uniquely hands-on experience coupled with mentorship and professional development.


Interns are integral to PVTC's summer camp experience. Over the course of a full camp session Interns will work in various departments and gain valuable professional skills building strong relationships with students and staff. Internships offer leadership experience and are designed to provide interns participants with training, support, and experience needed to achieve personal and career goals. 

What To Know Before Applying: ​

New in 2023: Departments & Specialties

If you've applied to be an intern with PVTC before, you may notice that the internship application is looking a little different this year! This summer, we will be assigning interns into "Departments", to ensure that interns get plenty of great experience. Applicants can still let us know if they wish to have a "specialty" within that department. Interns will likely be working with multiple amazing mentors this summer, learning various skills and tools within their department.
