The National Colonial Farm at Piscataway Park–a living history museum in Accokeek, Maryland–is now auditioning for the 2012 Museum Theatre Internship Program, which runs this summer from June 8 through July 29. Working with museum theatre professionals and scholars, interns will learn the art of living history interpretation and museum theatre. Interns will create and perform theatrical pieces on the topic of “The Politics of Mirth,” focusing on the many ways in which colonial Marylanders “diverted” themselves. Internship hours will be Friday through Sunday, 9:30 – 3:30, leading up to the culminating event, on the evenings of July 28 and 29.
We are seeking people who have performance experience, a passion for history and an interest in learning more about engaging audiences through museum theatre. Interns will be paid a stipend of $750. To request an audition, please send a resume and headshot to the manager of the interpretation at firstname.lastname@example.org.
