Fitzpatrick interns at Alley

Four recent college graduates joined the Alley Theatre staff in December as the first members of the Alley Theatre's Fitzpatrick Internship program. This program was created as a tribute to Bettye Fitzpatrick, who has been integral to the success of the Alley working for over 50 years as a stage manager, production manager, director of interns and most notably as a member of the Acting Company before her retirement in 2009.

The Fitzpatrick Internship Program is designed to honor Bettye Fitzpatrick's many facets and keep her living legacy a part of the future of Alley Theatre. Internships are available in both administration and production and are limited to no more than six candidates per year.

Alley Theatre's Fitzpatrick Internships provides training and educational opportunities to recent college graduates and students that will supplement a strong theatrical education and act as a bridge for early career professionals. Fitzpatrick Interns participate in and observe a professional theatre environment during the main theatre season. They are guided and directed by experienced managers and directors. Applicants are expected to demonstrate entry-level proficiency in their chosen areas of concentration and the desire to develop job skills through the diverse opportunities available at the Alley Theatre.  Fitzpatrick Interns receive a weekly stipend.  

The Alley Theatre's 2010-2011 Fitzpatrick Interns include Jaime Fruge, costumes intern; Stephanie Mami, education and community engagement intern; Kristen Smith, development intern; and Michael Weiss, lighting intern.

Applications for the 2011-2012 Fitzpatrick Internships are due October 1, 2011. For more information contact Rochelle Sanders at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 713-315-5423.
