The Intern Co. attracts the coolest, most multi-talented company members in the area. Their talents in theatre performance, production and design are strengthened by their interests that range far and wide. Intern Co. alumni go on to follow their passions and create careers for themselves that make us proud. Here's where we get to brag about some stand-out alums.
Haley can't believe her first Intern Co. show was a decade ago! Although not involved in theatre or the arts professionally, or really even as a hobby anymore, she carries with her all of the valuable lessons about teamwork and community that Intern Co. gave her.
Now, Haley is doing the opposite of what she imagined she'd be doing in high school. "I had wanted to be a writer and stick with theatre as a hobby, and now I'm in the geosciences and am playing roller derby on the side (me? a jock? who'd've known?)."
"Intern Co. was honestly the thing I looked forward to the most every summer, and I'm so happy to see they're still doing great things and keeping it weird."

weirdos and mavericks and people who take the word ‘impossible’ as a challenge, and the words ‘why
not?’ as a battle cry."
