Thank you for your interest in The National Museum of Toys and Miniatures. There is one internship available at this time. Deadline to apply is August 2, 2019.
2019 Theatrical Writing and Performing Internship
The theatrical intern will play an integral role in the development of interactive interpretation for the upcoming Parlor Performances exhibit. Parlor Performances will examine the cultural significance of theater in the home through exploring toys that engage with theatrical productions. As part of this exhibit, The National Museum of Toys and Miniatures seeks a theatrical intern to research, write, and perform a 15-20-minute play – intended for our multi-generational family audience – using a toy theater and puppets. The theatrical intern will be responsible to perform the play and provide historical interpretation at the Parlor Performances exhibit opening (Friday, October 18, 2019) and during our Day After Thanksgiving Family Day (Friday, November 29, 2019). The play will be performed multiple times at each event.
