Each morning, I arrive at the theatre at 8am for morning staff meeting. The interns meet with our bosses to discuss trials and triumphs from the previous day, then address what to do about them. At 8:30am, we head down to the curb to check students in as they arrive. At 9:15am, we take our students to Shakespeare, Dance, Movement, Musical Theatre, or Voice class, then do the same at 10:25am. We participate in acting, dance, and voice exercises during each class and assist the teachers in whatever they may need. We eat lunch with our students, then we take them to a three-hour acting block. We participate in warm-ups, then we do the acting activities with our students, both leading by example and learning alongside them, as we are also developing artists and performers. We then take our students down to the curb at 4pm for them to get picked up. What surprised me most about this internship is how down to earth the environment is. I was under the impression that, since the IRT is a professional regional theatre, all the leadership and acting teachers would act very prestigious. But the exact opposite is true. Everyone at the IRT is so humble, passionate, kind, and down to earth. Every acting teacher admits he or she is a forever student, which I love, because I am, too. I do theatre and teach theatre because I love learning about the artform and the people, and everyone at the IRT feels the exact same way.
