Each fall, the Hop welcomes a new batch of Dartmouth student interns. For the next academic year, these six juniors and seniors will spend 10 hours a week embedded in various Hop departments, learning the ropes in production, marketing, educational outreach, box office, house management, graphic design and more, and taking on important responsibilities in those Hop arenas.
We asked this year’s interns to introduce themselves and tell us what Hop events they most look forward to this fall.
Jules Wheaton ’19 is from Santa Fe, New Mexico, and is majoring in art history and government with further interests in Native American studies. She is interning in the Audience Engagement Department, which is responsible for letting the campus, community and wider world know about Hop events and stories. Jules says: “I am looking forward to sharing what I love about the Hop with my peers on campus in a fresh, accessible way. I want Dartmouth students to claim as our own the amazing opportunities at the Hop and enrich our academic and social lives in a different dimension.”
Jules’ top five of the fall:
David Gonzalez’ Cuentos: Tales from the Latino World: I grew up on the cuentos of the resident storyteller at the Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian in Santa Fe and am excited to reconnect with my roots through these stories.
Cabaret by the Dartmouth Department of Theater: Ever since seeing my summer camp counselors perform a rendition of “Maybe This Time,” I jump at every chance I get to see Cabaret. And so should you!
I, Claude Monet Exhibition on Screen (HD Broadcast): After seeing Michelangelo by Exhibition on Screen at the Hop this summer, I can’t wait to check out Monet’s masterpieces in what might be an even closer experience than seeing them in person.
Tracktown (film): Think Juno, but instead of Michael Cera as a high school track dud, Dartmouth ‘12 Alexi Pappas stars in, co-writes, and co-directs this indie take on her own experience training for the Olympics.
Antigone In Ferguson: The next best thing to actually being able to participate ourselves in the question and answer of the play’s Ferguson production.
