Being an intern is not glamorous by any means, the hours are long, and the pay is well...nothing. However, I am sure the experience that I will gain from this internship will far out weigh the cons. So far this experience has been very interesting, since Shakespeare Dallas is set outdoors this puts more strain on the costumes than a regular theater because the weather in Texas is pretty miserable. This calls for more costume cleaning and having to make sure the actors are not going to go through any sort heat exhaustion due to any excessive costuming.
Yesterday was probably the strangest day I've had since I started working there. A huge storm filled with hail blew through right before a show and basically damaged everyones cars, including mine (check out a picture of the storm below). That was definitely a fun filled day! Anyway, I am still trying to find my place inside the company and I hope one day I will become a part of Shakespeare Dallas. I hope you found this to be helpful or at least entertaining! I will be updating about my experience further throughout the summer.
