The MAT program was definitely a unique experience. You get to learn the ins and outs of what it takes to get a show up and running. Theatre is a huge part of my life, and having this internship only made that passion grow. You have help if needed, but overall you get to call the shots, and learn how to take charge of a production. While it can be stressful at times, the friends you make and the success of your show makes it worth it every single day! I've never had a great paying opportunity in the theatre world before the MAT internship.
