At Bag&Baggage, we are thrilled to be able to offer an array of opportunities for high-school-aged students to get involved with our work in a more hands-on way.
B&B offers stipend technical theatre internships for two high-school-aged students for every production. These interns act as full members of the production crew: running the light board or working backstage as run crew, right alongside our professional stage managers and production team members. All high school students with an interest in theatre are welcome and encouraged to apply; preference is given to students from within Washington County who are in either their junior or senior year of high school.

The Silverna Scott Technical Theatre Internship
Bag&Baggage Productions is pleased to manage a commemorative internship in honor of Silverna Scott who retired from Hillsboro High School after more than 20 years leading Hilhi’s theatre arts program. B&B worked with Silverna for a number of years, engaging with Hilhi’s theatre students in workshops and via paid internships with the company.
Scott Palmer, B&B’s Founding Artistic Director and graduate of Hillsboro High School in 1986, said, “Sil has been a champion; not only for us, but for her students. Over the past few years, her involvement with Bag&Baggage has increased our ability to reach out to students with a passion for the performing arts and connect with them in powerful ways, both in and outside of the classroom. We want to ensure that future students from Hilhi understand and remember the important contributions she has made to both the school’s theatre program and the broader theatrical community in Hillsboro. The Silverna Scott Internship Award allows us to do just that.”
The Silverna Scott Internship is awarded to a junior or senior from Hillsboro High School who evidences a commitment to the work of the theatre, and who has an interest in developing skills in stage management or theatrical production. The award will be publicized to Hillsboro High School students at the beginning of each school year, and the successful student will receive professional internship training and a stipend.
To apply for the Silverna Scott Internship, please submit the application form above, noting your interest in applying for this particular internship.
