CLO Internship Programs
“As the Musical Direction Intern, I help take care of any transpositions, help prepare all the music for the orchestra and assist principals and the ensemble in learning their vocals. The hours are long, but knowing the show couldn't go on without you is well worth it.”Carson, Musical Direction
Spend Time in the Real World of Musical Theater and Arts Management
Since 1973, CLO’s Internship Program, with the financial support of the CLO Guild, has been attracting a talented mix of energetic students from across the country and providing them with the building blocks for successful careers. The CLO Internship Program has resulted in college credits for some students (check with your college advisor) and has influenced many to pursue their interest professionally.

Right in the heart of the action, interns play an instrumental role in bringing a production to life on stage. Here is what some of the past interns had to say:
“As the Musical Direction Intern, I help take care of any transpositions, help prepare all the music for the orchestra and assist principals and the ensemble in learning their vocals. The hours are long, but knowing the show couldn’t go on without you is well worth it.”
“Working at the Pittsburgh CLO is a very rewarding experience because it provides student interns with real work experience and gives them the opportunity to network with professionals within their field of study.”
“As far as I know, CLO is the only company of its caliber in the country that offers an internship in choreography – and I am most grateful for that.”
“CLO has created this program for interns who are motivated, have a strong work ethic and like doing productive work. I can say the work is tough, but when done well, it is noticed and it has your name attached to it.”
