Texas Performing Arts provides the opportunity for students to learn alongside industry professionals and to gain valuable resume-building experience that serves as a unique complement to the university curriculum. We believe in providing students with a professional work environment that will better equip them with the necessary skills and experience to prepare them for their careers. We are proud to employ over 80 students each semester.

One of our student employees, Nicole McLellan, had this to say about her experience:
“Texas Performing Arts is a huge organization with a multitude of workers who each contribute in their own way. After experiencing this type of work, it strengthened my desire to work with a team in my future career, rather than taking on a self-employed or independent position. As a student majoring in International Relations & Global Studies with a minor in European studies…I believe I will be better equipped in the future to deal with people because of my time at Texas Performing Arts.”
