Hello, Ansley R. - Your question shows that you already have foresight and are serious about becoming a theatre professional !
This question can be answered in general, however. You will have to decide where you want to live. The best opportunities are in New York City and Los Angeles. That would be for both technical and performing work.
Many people study in towns outside of the two cities . Many towns have excellent theatres that offer internships, a lot of times in the summer. I would say that it boils down to where you'd want to live. Definitely research various internship programs in various places. At the time I auditioned for an internship, I was told that I did not have as much experience as they require. Do build up credits and or experience . Audition for every school production as well as community productions. Build the resume .
The best opportunities will be discovered after you evaluate the various programs.
