3 NoVa Locals Selected for Kennedy Center Internship

by Kate Karstens

The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts’ three college summer interns will conclude their training on August 7. All three interns are from Northern Virginia and have been working for the Kennedy Center since June 1.

Falls Church native, Fae Montgomery, of Swarthmore College, has been a contributor to the Washington National Opera Costume Studio. This internship is meant to broaden her understanding of day-to-day operations, which she will take back to Swarthmore in the fall where she is pursuing an art degree.

Allison Dyke, of Reston, was chosen for the Opera Costume Studio as well, working specifically in costume management. She attends Elon University, working for a dual major in psychology and dance performance. Bonnie Newton, of McLean, works to make performances at the Kennedy Center affordable for all, including managing free performances, updating social media, and liaisons with artists. She will return to Christopher Newport University to complete her degree in theater.
