Internships

Intern Company 2012-13

The PORTLAND STAGE Theater Internship Program is committed to training future generations of theater professionals. Applicants should be highly motivated individuals who have acquired basic training in the theater arts and are looking to explore their field further through meaningful hands-on experience. Portland Stage Company interns are integral members of the staff and can expect to be challenged by a creative process that relies on both ingenuity and collaboration.

Interns at Portland Stage work with leading designers, directors, administrators, and our professional production team throughout the season. They leave with a greater knowledge of the theatrical process and the satisfaction of being part of a dedicated theater company where exceptional quality is the end goal.

What you can expect:

 • The hours are full time.
 • Housing and a stipend will be provided.
 • Schedules are rigorous and intensive.
 • College credit can be arranged.
 • The commitment is from late August through May.
