Summer Is Here, and the Internships Are Sprouting!

Caleb Carver and Lindsey Oetken, "The Learned Ladies"

“School” is officially out for summer (go ahead, shout some Alice Cooper!), but Theatre Simpson company members are expanding their horizons of experience around the country. At last report (and I’m sure someone will correct me if I’ve overlooked someone), the following current or just-graduated students are keeping themselves quite busy this summer, theatrically speaking:

Emily Ledger–Santa Fe Opera (Sound/Electrics Apprentice)

Kelsey Swanson–Ford’s Theatre, Washington DC (Lighting Intern)

Tiffany Flory–Des Moines Playhouse (Education Intern), Iowa Shakespeare Experience (Actor)

Katie Rooney–Historic Valley Junction (Events Coordinator)–[Permanent position]

Meghan Vosberg–Spencer Community Theatre (Intern)

Cassandra Ring–Brownville Summer Theatre (Acting Company and Technician)

Caleb Carver–Des Moines Playhouse (Intern-May Term), Theatre Cedar Rapids (Education Intern and Assistant Director)

Sadie Ackerman–StageWest, Des Moines (Stage Manager-The Shape of Things [Jennifer Nostrala, Director])

Lindsey Oetken–Simpson Summer Theatre Institute for Youth (Intern), Destination Leader/Teaching Assistant (Simpson Summer Orientation and Simpson Colloquium)

Trevor Vaughn–Simpson Summer Theatre Institute for Youth (Intern)

Ali Simpson–Simpson Summer Theatre Institute for Youth (Intern)

Kennedy Horton–Simpson Summer Theatre Institute for Youth (Intern)

Samantha Harold-Aaron–Des Moines Playhouse (“Tracy”-Hairspray)

Working outside the walls and halls of Blank PAC is an important part of the development of each student’s experience–so important, in fact, that it is required for all majors and minors! We are pleased with all of the enthusiastic artistry that these students are putting forth, and are looking forward to hearing reports of their experiences–and war stories–at summer’s end. If you have a chance, stop by and see what they are up to!
