Dramaturgy/Literary (Fall/Winter/Spring)

The Dramaturgy/Literary internship at CTC offers the opportunity to observe the field of new play development, literary management and dramaturgical research, script analysis and production support.  It also provides an opportunity to participate in myriad activities associated with the functioning of a dramaturgy/literary department of a professional theatre.

The duties of each intern vary, but a general list of potential learning projects includes: reading and evaluating new scripts; corresponding with playwrights, agents and literary managers, conducting library and archival research; dramatic text analysis, editing and compiling different editions of a script; and observing new play development workshops and rehearsals.

The ideal candidate should have strong writing and communication skills, a strong background in literature (especially drama), and experience in research.  Candidates should also have a special interest in the process of transforming a written play into theatrical productions.  Word processing skills and basic computer competence are helpful.  We are looking for someone who has attained their undergraduate degree and is expecting to pursue dramaturgy and/or new play development at the graduate or early-career level.  Candidates must be able to commit to 10-20 hours a week for 6-12 months.

We are not offering any fall/winter/spring Dramaturgy Literary internships at this time.


Directing (Fall/Winter/Spring)

A directing internship is a professional learning experience for early career applicants with pertinent training and skills.  In addition to the internship application and recommendations, an interview may be required (an in-person interview is preferred but a telephone interview may suffice).  We are seeking those who are upper level undergraduates (junior or senior) or those who have already attained their undergraduate degree to apply.

It is important to note that the experience of a directing intern is entirely dependent upon the process of the production's director; therefore, the nature of each internship may vary widely.  Directing interns begin their assignment on (or before) the first rehearsal date of the production and the suggested commitment then continues through the opening performance or understudy rehearsal (scheduled shortly after the official opening).  The period of time may vary from about four weeks to two months, depending upon the production schedule.  The rehearsal day is typically 8 to 10 hours a day, six days a week.  Some days span a twelve hour time period.  Mondays are the customary day off.

Assignments are made on an on-going basis.

Now accepting resumes for the 2019-2020 season!


Assistant Director (Summer)

Theatre Arts Training's pre-professional programming offers two Summer Intensives.Theses audition-only, performance opportunities for 5 – 12th graders are staged in our flexible, 300-seat space led by our professional teaching and production staff.  Interns have an intensive, hands-on experience and learn their craft by practicing side by side with our staff of directors, designers, choreographers, production personnel, and union crew. 

The Assistant Director Intern experience at CTC is designed to expose undergraduate, graduate, and early career directors to an internal view of the rehearsal process of a professional regional theatre with youth.

The Assistant Director Intern will attend all rehearsals, production meetings, performances, and strike.  Learning projects may include: researching and preparing pre-rehearsal dramaturgy packets, running scenes, blocking scenes, giving notes, communication with stage manager and/or design team, facilitating student-lead research projects or leading post-show discussions. The Assistant Director Intern will supervise actors before and after rehearsals, during lunches and breaks, and help backstage during performances. This internship also requires one week working in a TAT summer camp classroom to become familiar with TAT policy, procedure, and working with youth. The ideal candidate will have experience directing at the college level or above. Experience with youth is preferred.

Summer 2020 opportunities will be available in Winter 2020. 


Paint (Fall/Winter/Spring)

The goal of an internship in Paint is to observe and paint alongside the Charge Artist and learn advanced techniques using a variety of materials.  We have two paint shops, one with a 28' by 43' paint frame and the other with a 50' by 40' paint deck.  Interns will have experience on both depending on the show requirements.

There is a single internship available per show build period.  In order for the intern to have the optimum experience, the suggested minimum time commitment is 6 weeks at 32 hours a week during normal shop hours (Monday through Friday/7:30am – 4:00pm).  This internship can be longer if the intern is interested and this is strongly encouraged since more than one show will give a greater diversity in techniques.  Show projects could consist of work with scrims, drops, translucencies, faux finishes, texturing, color mixing, and carving depending on the needs of the design.

The intern must have prior experience in a theatre environment (i.e. college or community theatre) and an art background.  Prior experience on drops is a plus but not necessary.  Must have taken drawing classes and scenic art classes, or must have extensive experience to make up for the lack of introductory training.

Positions will only be offered upon portfolio review and an interview with the Charge Artist.
