The Shakespeare & Company Internship Program is designed to train the next generation of theatre professionals to become successful and well-rounded members of the theatre community. Interns receive one-on-one mentoring from within their department and experience with professional artists and staff. Throughout the internship, in a lecture series designed exclusively for interns, staff members from across the company illuminate the inner workings of a large arts organization.
Interns also have the opportunity to complete an independent capstone project within their department and will receive career guidance with performance evaluations and resume/portfolio review. Internships are available year-round, typically 15- or 16-week duration, but if one of the tracks below is not perfect for an applicant, programs of custom duration or areas of interest can be developed as well.
