Learning in the Wings is a hands-on educational opportunity in which high school students participate in a unique job shadowing/internship experience alongside Palace staff in the departments of Technical Direction, Front of House Management, Box Office Management and Arts Administration.
The program is designed to provide eager students with an interactive and educational learning opportunity that explores potential career possibilities and offers legitimate, “real world” internship experience within a professional organization. Roughly 10-20 students participate in the program on an annual basis, during which they are engaged by creative strategies that provide them with introductory pathways to finishing high school or move into post secondary training or employment.
Students can learn:
- Sound & Light Engineering
- Carpentry and Props
- Stage Management and Technical Direction
- Customer Service and Patron Management
- Theater Operations
