The Shakespeare & Company Internship Program is designed to train the next generation of theater professionals to become successful and well-rounded members of the theater community.

Internships at Shakespeare & Company

Interns receive one-on-one mentoring from their department leads, in addition to working with professional artists. Throughout the internship, a lecture series designed exclusively for interns illustrates the inner workings of a large arts organization, as well as our own commitment to an identity-conscious environment.

Interns also have opportunities to complete independent capstone projects within their departments and receive career guidance with performance evaluations and resume and portfolio reviews.

Internships are typically 12 to 16 weeks in duration, but if one of the tracks listed below is not perfect for an applicant, programs of custom duration or areas of interest may be developed.

My favorite part here has been getting to work with a group of really awesome people and learning new things about my craft every single day.
Regan McKay, 2018
The staff and faculty are among the most compassionate, sincere, and knowledgeable an actor will encounter, and their priority is one: to give the actor the tools they need to discover - and wield - the deepest and most whole version of themselves. Shakespeare & Company helped me see how important advocating for arts in todays age is. I learned so much and now have an amazing support team cheering me on as my future career progresses.
