Interns should have a strong background in theatre and a commitment to learning about the day-to-day operations of the artistic department of a large regional theatre company. Daily tasks to include: script reading and correspondence, season selection research, assistance with auditions and casting, maintenance of script and headshot databases, reading and circulating industry news, and additional activities as assigned.
The intern should expect to be included in weekly staff meetings, be a part of ongoing conversations about the artistic work of the theatre, attend shows at The Old Globe, and get exposure to a variety of staff members in many departments.
Please submit a cover letter that details your interest in and qualifications for the position, a resume or list of relevant experience, and a list of references to Bernadette Hanson at bhanson@TheOldGlobe.org. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis.

Applicants should have a strong interest in professional stage management. Interns will work alongside AEA stage managers throughout all aspects of the rehearsal process.

The stage management internship is a full-time commitment, 6 days a week. A typical internship lasts 8 weeks, though the length of internship could be adapted to fit school schedules.

Academic Credit
It is the responsibility of the intern to coordinate class credit with the intern’s school. The Old Globe will be happy to cooperate with your institution to complete any necessary paperwork.

At this time, stage management internships at The Old Globe are not paid positions. Interns will be considered company members, however, and will receive other perks such as complimentary tickets and free entrance to Balboa Park attractions.
