Have you checked out the Student Opportunities page?  We've been posting a lot of internships lately!  http://wiki.uiowa.edu/display/theatre/Internship+and+Job+Postings

The New Play Festival production of Ondine is now collecting empty cans of energy drinks, preferably Red Bull. We are in need of over 100 cans of Red Bull as props for our production. There are two boxes in the theatre building for drop off for empty cans -- one is outside the front office, and the other is under the graduate student mailboxes.

Theatre Arts majors may fulfill some of their production credit requirements by working backstage on the Iowa Summer Rep.  At 9:00 am on Monday, March 5th, a sign-up page for the Summer 2012 session of 049:045 Production Lab: Run Crew will be posted on this page.
