Program Overview (from the program website):

Each year, over a thousand early career theatre artists, technicians and professionals, nationally and internationally, compete for two dozen internships and fellowships offered at the Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington, D.C. Members of the intern/fellow company work alongside some of the most renowned artists and professionals in the world to produce and support the mainstage season at the nation’s premier classical theatre.

Approximately 10 months in length, professional internships and fellowships are season-long, full-time commitments. Schedules are rigorous; production and artistic interns work 40 – 60 hours per week while administrative interns work 40 hours plus additional weekend and evening hours as needed. All interns and fellows receive a weekly stipend of $150 a week to help defray the cost of living expenses. Housing is available for out-of-town interns and fellows.

Following their Shakespeare Theatre Company internship/fellowship experiences, our interns and fellows have gone on to work with many of the most respected artistic and cultural institutions in the country, including New York City Opera, The Goodman Theatre, The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Playwrights Horizons, Arena Stage, Signature Theatre Company, Second Stage Theatre and The Folger Shakespeare Library. Other intern and fellow alumni have pursued graduate study with such institutions as Yale School of Drama, Harvard Graduate School of Education and Carnegie Mellon University. Additionally, many interns and fellows have joined the Shakespeare Theatre Company as full-time staff members.
