Sixteen college and two high school interns have joined the staff of the Summer Theatre of New Canaan.
The college interns will be working during the summer season on all of the shows.
Each of the interns will have a focus within different aspects of the productions, such as technical, costuming, acting, management, music, and other important pieces of the five shows.
The Summer Theatre of New Canaan's 10th anniversary season includes mainstage productions "South Pacific" from June 15 to July 13 and "Grease" from July 20 to Aug. 11. For young audiences, the STONC will present "The Little Mermaid Jr." from June 15 to Aug. 11 weekends and selected Friday mornings; "Pinkalicious the Musical" from July 13 to Aug. 11 weekends; and Dr. Seuss' "The Cat in the Hat" from June 29 to Aug. 11 weekends, and an additional performance of "The Little Mermaid" by special-needs youngsters along with their professional actor mentors.
The internships are an opportunity for motivated students who plan on having a career in the theater.
