We are excited to offer internship positions to assist with our festival each year. These interns will learn the ins and outs of what it takes to produce high quality, high fun theatrical productions with youth. This year, we are pleased to be able to offer all six student assistant director intern positions through the Nex-Generation Round Up for Youth Internship Program.
We are also grateful for our acceptance into the Fort Hays State University/Dane G. Hansen Foundation Internship Program which has provided us with a Marketing Intern for the summer who will help us with all festival promotions.
Special thanks to the Nex-Generation Round Up for Youth program for your financial and programmatic support of our internship program.
Thank you also to Fort Hays State University for selecting our organization to receive assistance through their FHSU/Dane G. Hansen Internship Program.
On behalf of the Main Street Arts Council and festival participants, THANK YOU, to our festival underwriters and sponsors! Whether through grant funding, memberships, donations or personal time and talents, the festival would not be possible without these individuals and organizations!
And an additional thanks to the Dane G. Hansen Foundation for making the local community fund grants available to area community foundations.
