Student Volunteer Opportunities
Kansas City Repertory Theatre is focused on creating opportunities for collaborative relationships between high school and college-aged students and KC Rep’s experienced theatre professionals. This program will use a combination of hands-on experience, professional training and mentorships to introduce students to the skills required to become the next generation of arts administrators. We are committed to encouraging and guiding students through the transition from student to professional and tailor each this volunteer experience to the current needs of our organization and to the experience and objectives of the student.
Arts Management Volunteer Opportunities are designed for college-age candidates who intend to make arts administration their profession. Schedules are negotiable, but would typically fall between the hours of 9:00am – 5:00pm, Monday- Friday. These opportunities are unpaid but students are encouraged to apply for college credit through their respective universities.
All student volunteers will be provided with hands-on, real world experience in a professional theatre environment. Student volunteers will be full members of their departments, requiring them to attend appropriate departmental and staff meetings. The KC Rep Theatre’s staff will provide each student volunteer with training, guidance, and professional knowledge. In addition, student volunteers receive free admission to Rep productions and the opportunity to visit and tour other local arts organizations. To apply, please contact 816.235.2707 or email@example.com.
Kansas City Repertory Theatre’s Job Shadowing Program gives local high school and college-aged students an opportunity to shadow a member of KC Rep’s professional staff for a day or an event as a slice-of-work life view into a career in the theatre or arts administration. Interested students need to be recommended by a member of their teaching staff and signed parental permission is required. To apply, please contact 816.235.2707 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
