The theater intern will focus primarily on Antenna's artistic performance history

the arts and the environment, effective writing and clear communication skills, plus

proficiency in standard computer software (Word, Excel, and internet research).

ECOlogical Project, communicate with partner organizations, prepare data and

technology, conduct interviews, and develop an interpretive narrative through an

30th anniversary of Antenna Theater.

Time Commitment:

We are looking for three college interns for this summer session (June through

September 2008), who can each work approximately 30 hours a week for eight to twelve

weeks.  We are flexible as to the exact dates of every internship, and they may

start individually during the season.

Location!  Antenna will provide a furnished house with three private bedrooms in the

Marin Headlands (
