IVRT continues its summer internship program by announcing one 2017 paid internship made possible through funding by the LA County Board of Supervisors via the LA County Arts Commission.

This internship is sponsored by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Arts Commission.  132 undergraduate interns will participate in the program this year at 119 performing, presenting, and literary nonprofit arts organizations and municipal arts agencies throughout LA County.  In addition to their full-time 10 week paid internship, interns will participate in educational events as part of the program, which is funded by the Getty Foundation.  The educational events are designed to provide interns with a broader perspective of the vibrant arts and cultural landscape of the County.  For additional information on the Los Angeles County Arts Commission, the Arts Internship Program, and for a complete list of all the internships offered this summer, visit the Arts Commission website at www.lacountyarts.org.

Please read the eligibility requirements carefully. Internship positions are open to currently enrolled undergraduate (2- or 4-year) college students who reside or attend college in Los Angeles County. Students must have completed at least one semester of college by June 1, 2017, or will complete their undergraduate degree between May 1 - September 1, 2017 in order to participate.  Students must be able to legally work in the United States. 

Students who have already earned a BA, BS or a higher degree are not eligible. Students who have previously participated in the Los Angeles County Arts Internship Program are not eligible to participate a second time. The Arts Commission encourages eligible students from all ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds, as well as disabled students, to apply. Students invited to participate in the program will be asked to provide verification of eligibility via college transcripts, driver’s license, and other documents to show enrollment status and/or LA County residence. There are no exceptions to our eligibility requirements. Read more about eligibility requirements here.

The Inland Valley Repertory Theatre (IVRT) summer FUND DEVELOPMENT internship provides the opportunity to gain a comprehensive overview of, keen insight into, and hands-on experience in a wide range of administrative tasks and artistic decisions. The intern will gain an understanding of the essential steps that go into planning, funding, and executing a non-profit company theater season. Our intern will work closely with the company executive director and key board members on fundraising and fund development initiatives, and closely observe and participate in preparations for IVRT's upcoming production season.


IVRT summer intern candidates should have excellent writing, communications, and interpersonal skills, as well as some familiarity with database management and a general understanding of how to conduct research. Basic proficiency with Microsoft Excel preferred. Proficiency in social media is a plus. Graphic design and desktop publishing skills also valued though not required.

Please tell us in your own words why you are interested in an IVRT summer internship or volunteer opportunity. Impress us with all the cool stuff you already do and how good you are at it!

If selected for the program, you will spend up to 400 hours learning how a theater is run, (it's not just building sets, putting up posters and making coffee, although that happens too!), and of course you will receive applicable volunteer hours from IVRT so you can build up that all-important resume.

IVRT is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation, founded in 1990 to promote the talents of artists of all ages by entertaining, educating, enlightening and employing great people doing great theater!
