Our students have completed professional internships at some of the area's finest professional theaters. During an internship, a student is engaged in the complete theater process: acting, set and costume design, stage management, directing, and marketing.
Buffalo State and Shea's Performing Arts Center, Buffalo's home for touring Broadway productions, have a strong educational/professional partnership. Shea's offers internationally recognized outreach programs—"Shea's In the Schools," "Camp Broadway," and the "On School Time Performance Series"—providing interns with first-hand experiences regarding the demands of educational theater.
Internship responsibilities include working with: area students (K-12) in all areas of the theater, organizations visiting Shea's, and professional production companies (e.g., Disney, Nickelodeon), and individual artists as they prepare for performances.
Buffalo State's Career Development Center provides additional career counseling and internship opportunities to current students and alumni.
