TheatreWorks’ Professional Internship Program gives students and professionals the opportunity to learn about the art, craft, and business of live theatre as they work side by side with award-winning theatre artists, administrators, and other professionals.


All departments listed offer summer-long internships, ranging from 2-4 months in duration. Summer interns should expect to work a minimum 25 hour week. Season-long internships are available in some departments. Season interns should be able to commit to a minimum of 10 hours per week. During their tenure, summer and season interns are expected to take part in significant company events such as opening night receptions, the annual season announcement, and fundraisers.

Eligibility and Requirements

The Internship Program is intended for applicants of college age or older. Exceptional high school seniors entering college will be considered for certain internships. Professional internships are unpaid, though college credit can be arranged. Participants must have residence and transportation.


TheatreWorks gives back by offering a calendar of optional enrichment activities. The Brown Bag Series is the cornerstone of the enrichment program. These round-table discussions, scheduled with members of our artistic and administrative staff, help interns gain insight into the many possible avenues of career development in professional theatre. Additional enrichment opportunities may include attendance at

  • Staff meetings and rehearsals
  • Design presentations
  • Invited dress rehearsals
  • Access to complimentary arts services such as Arts Roundtable
  • Complimentary tickets for each TheatreWorks production during residency
