Seattle Repertory Theatre
155 Mercer Street
DescriptionAre you a creative, driven, passionate about the arts, and looking for a bridge between university and the world of professional theatre? Seattle Repertory Theatre is seeking interns for their 2014-2015 season.!
Seattle Rep's renowned Professional Arts Training Program has been preparing theatre artists and administrators for 20 years. Our interns are bright, self-motivated individuals with basic training and experience in theatre who are committed to strengthening their skills and talents. They are effective communicators with an enthusiasm for community building and self-discovery. And they go on to work at the country's top organizations (including right here at the Rep).
The Artistic Department Internship provides an opportunity to be part of the day-to-day life of a regional theatre artistic staff. Interns participate in Seattle Rep's ongoing artistic efforts, with an emphasis on dramaturgy, literary management, and casting. Projects include reading and evaluating new plays, organizing auditions, dramaturgical research, administrative work, and assisting playwrights and directors in the rehearsal process. Associate Artistic Director Braden Abraham is the supervisor for the Artistic Literary Intern, and Casting Director Erin Kraft is the supervisor for the Artistic Casting Intern. Their advice for future Artistic Interns: "This internship is a great opportunity for emerging dramaturges, playwrights, and directors. It provides a valuable link between the academic and professional worlds."
