Education and Outreach Intern at an Up-And-Coming Dynamic Theatre Company With a Mission in Social Justice
Are you passionate about arts and literature? Are you equally passionate about social issues? Have you considered a career in teaching? Do you often draw connections between social inequalities in literature and those in current society? Arouet is a Seattle based theatre company that produces works that speak of civil rights, tolerance, freedom of and from religion, social justice, and the celebration of differences.
Arouet is a new production company with growing exposure. This spring we will produce the North American premiere of Hen Night Epiphany and the Northwest premiere of The Temperamentals. As an education and outreach intern you will get an opportunity to create meaningful lesson plans that can be shared with our student audiences. Additionally, interns will be given the opportunity to assist with post-show discussions with the audience.
The education and outreach intern’s role is a vital one, with a mission to inspire our audience to ask a question that they have not yet thought to ask.
What You Will Learn:
- How to create meaningful lesson plans that demonstrate educational connections between Arouet’s productions and Washington State Learning Standards
- How to conduct effective and responsive post-show audience discussions
- Much more – you will be regarded as a valued member of the company
What We Require:
- Have completed English 101 or be enrolled
- Organized and self-starter
- Open minded and accepting of all people
This position has flexible hours. Hen Night Epiphany runs March 21 – April 6 with performances in Edmonds and Seattle. The Temperamentals runs May 9 – 25. Availability for the performances are not required but strongly encouraged. You will be expected to contribute a minimum of 15 hours per quarter.
This is an unpaid internship.
