Our intern last summer was Lowes Moore from Occidental College. He was terrific and a tremendous help to us for the 10 weeks he was here at the Fountain last summer. He also had a wonderful experience himself:
“I can’t even begin to process all of the great things that have happened to me this summer. I’ve found a family here at the Fountain Theatre. Everyday forward I will be grateful for all of the wisdom and knowledge this experience has given me. This summer has opened up doors for me to work in many different aspects of the arts. This is one of the best summer experiences yet.”
