My time at Checkpoint Theatre was invaluable in helping me grow as an artist. This isn’t a coffee and printing errands kind of internship — you are taken as seriously as anyone else on the team, and that helped me begin to take my own ambitions seriously, too.M. J.
The amount of work, heart and collaboration that goes into Checkpoint’s plays and productions show how much they care about and are motivated by original Singapore work. It was heartwarming to see that from a behind-the-scenes perspective and contribute to it.R. Y.
My internship with Checkpoint Theatre has opened my eyes to many aspects of theatre and given me a new appreciation and understanding of what goes into theatre-making – beyond stage design, scriptwriting and acting.A. S.
