SFPH internships are designed for students or recent graduates who are seeking a career theatre. Interning at SFPH offers the opportunity to work hands-on at successful theatre company. Interns are an integral part of daily operations at SFPH and are treated as full staff members. Interns participate in staff meetings and get access to a yourname-at-sfplayhouse.org email account. The internship will be a valuable, career-building experience; we guarantee you will strengthen your skills and resume. Unique opportunities including observing readings, rehearsals, technical rehearsals, auditions, etc are made available to all interns based on their interests. Internships provides an opportunity to gain a comprehensive understanding of the day-to-day and long-term workings of a theater company and, at the same time, assume responsibility for practical assignments that are critical to company operations. While each of the internships focuses on a specific department, each intern will get to dabble in all aspects of running a non-profit theatre company.
