Charleston School of the Arts Student Enjoying Spring Internship with Charleston Stage Company

Charleston School of the Arts student Paris Scott’s reflection on her spring semester internship with Charleston Stage at the Dock Street Theater:

“At my internship with Charleston Stage I get to learn how a real theater costume shop works. I get to work on costumes for the shows that are put on at the Dock Street Theater. I have learned sewing techniques that combine the efficiency needed when making costumes with the strength needed to keep them together on stage.”

Her teacher at School of the Arts Catherine Yackey said, “Work-based Learning experiences, like this one Miss Scott is maximizing, empower students with the skills needed to succeed in their future career.”
