Summer Internships 2015
-Lesley Stevenson, Class of 2016
Door County, Wisconsin
As an acting intern at Door Shakespeare, I contributed to the efforts of a professional theatre company in many different capacities, both on and offstage. My acting responsibilities included playing minor roles in both of the season's shows, Romeo & Juliet and The Tempest, while understudying some of the larger roles and performing onstage music, both instrumental and vocal. I also assisted with wardrobe, costumes, lighting, set changeovers, publicity, and helped in whatever additional capacities the theatre needed, working to prepare our unique outdoor performance space. I gained a deep appreciation for the process of rehearsing and performing professional shows and enjoyed the immense rewards that come with it, shaping me into a more well rounded, thoughtful, and experienced theatre artist.
