The Hangar Internship Program offers you the opportunity to work alongside professional artists and managers at the forefront of an award-winning regional not-for-profit theatre in the beautiful Finger Lakes region of upstate New York.

Hangar Internships are for individuals who desire a challenging practical experience in the real world, and for those who are willing to devote their full energies to the internship. Hours and duties vary with different departmental assignments. After an initial orientation period, all Hangar interns can expect that they will assume essential and meaningful responsibilities under the direct supervision of a Department Head.
