Vital Theatre

“At my internship at Vital Theatre Company, I learned new skills that I can apply to acting, staging and design. At Thalia Book Camp, I learned new ways to brainstorm. I loved meeting new writers every day at the book camp and I loved how interested the kids were in both camps. This experience will help me in further internships working with kids.”

“When the summer began I was so nervous to start my internship especially since I’m working with two professional plumbers. The first day turned out to be great, I was able to get hands on and help fix a sink that was contaminated with lead. This internship has helped me to make a decision about whether I want to pursue this as a career. It also has helped me to practice responsibility and discipline.”
