  Blog Entry:

 

As a marketing intern with the Hanover Theatre, I am gaining insight into the marketing side of theater performances and all of the background work that goes into making a theatre of this caliber work. The Hanover Theatre is a fast-paced environment with a small staff who work to make sure that each day at the Hanover presents us with new challenges.

 

As an English major, I have a strong background in writing and performance, so my skill set is used effectively in the drafting of press releases and articles. Recently, I updated the Hanover Theatre’s website to be more user-friendly and cohesive with the goal of boosting the site’s visitor count.

 

This internship is a great opportunity to learn every aspect of working for a theater organization, as well as a great way to meet new people and become involved in the Central Massachusetts community.
