Bygone Theatre is looking for our next intern as part of our Youth Outreach initiative! Janice Li was our most recent volunteer, working as a Production Assistant; she worked on “Dial M For Murder” as an Assistant Stage Manager and helped build the set, creating our fabulous brick wall all by herself!
Right now we’re in-between shows, so we’re looking for someone to help with more general company stuff, especially with promotions and expanding our social media presence. The ideal candidate will be:
- A Toronto high school student
- Interested in and passionate about theatre and the arts
- knowledgable of social media platforms (ie. facebook, twitter, instagram, youtube, wordpress, pinterest etc)
- Reliable and responsible
- Full of energy with a positive attitude and willingness to learn
What is key here is not so much experience as attitude; we are happy to share anything we know and hopefully you can teach us some things too!
While hours are extremely flexible, we do require a time commitment of a minimum of 3 months, as responsibilities will include maintaining (and possibly creating) social media accounts leading up until at least our November fundraiser.
We are open to adjusting the position to suit the students interests and needs; production based positions will be available closer to our next show, and students who assist out in other areas before then will be given preference.
This is a non-paying position, and a great way to earn your volunteer hours! Students who complete their tasks competently are welcome to use us as references or ask for a formal reference letter.
HOW TO APPLY:
If you’re interested in being involved, send your cover letter (explaining what relevant skills you have and why you want to be involved) and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org . We will contact potential candidates for interviews. Feel free to email us with any questions as well!
