|This year, as an intern, I have learned more about myself than
I ever learned at any school. It made me aware of the
spiritual/internal side of theatre, the intellectual/analytical
side of theatre and the visceral side of theatre. I have learned
the importance of bravery in art. I always thought that being
genuine in the arts was essential, but here I learned how to do
that. Now I have to cultivate it. I learned to write with the
purpose of expressing and communicating rather than with the
purpose of structure. I found how to reach my emotions and how to
invest myself in my craft without caring for the outside world.
This year made me see where art begins. Fedra Ramirez
"The Onstage Intern program has opened up so many doors for
me. I have been exposed to incredible people and projects in the
San Diego theater community. The Internship has been an invaluable
experience, and has given me a safe place to grow as an artist and
an actress for the past three years. My fellow interns inspire and
encourage me. Being surrounded by like-minded, creative people has
helped me foster my own ideas. Anyone with a passion for some
aspect of theater will find the internship to be fulfilling.
It's a lot of fun, a lot of theater, and a lot of creativity."
"My time as an intern with the Charles K. Nichols program has
been in many ways indescribable; the only word that comes to mind
being invaluable. As a student fresh out of high school and looking
to for different experiences rather than rushing off to college it
allowed me to tap further into my creative side whilst still
learning valuable lessons that were theatre based but life
