Join us for the summer and learn all about performing arts programming in a bustling 

island community.

To see how much of an impact the arts can have on a tight-knit, rural community, and knowing I was a part of it was an experience I will forever be grateful for.

Opera House Arts offers internships for high school and college students interested in acting, production, communications, and creative producing. All internships provide hands-on learning experiences as well as close mentorship by seasoned professionals in their chosen field.


For a minimum of four weeks within the ten-week summer season, interns work approximately 20 hours per week and become integral to our summer season.

Interns are paid a weekly stipend of $100 and can earn Community Service Credit. Interns could also be eligible for school credit depending on institutional requirements. 

OHA does not provide transportation to and from Deer Isle. A valid driver’s license is a plus. A limited amount of housing is available for out‐of-town interns.

Interning at the Stonington Opera House was such a wonderful experience. Even though I was an intern with limited knowledge of theater, the staff was incredibly welcoming and made me feel like I was an important part of their team. This internship allowed me to put the skills I’ve learned in my classes to use. It also gave me the opportunity to learn about different careers I had always been interested in, but never had a chance to fully explore. Most importantly, I felt like I was contributing to the Stonington community in a meaningful way.
