My time as a summer intern at MAT was a challenging, rewarding, and valuable experience. The schedule kept me quite busy, but throughout that time I was able to gain and refine many skills. As interns, our responsibilities included teaching children’s theatre camps in communities across north-central Montana, and directing a musical with Havre’s junior high and high school youth. I became a better teacher and team player through both experiences, and I gained skills as the vocal coach/director for the musical we produced. That was an excellent way for me to apply my skills from my music degree, and an enjoyable way to give back to the youth of Havre. I recommend this internship for anyone interested in being immersed into directing and children’s theatre.
