Professional Intern Company
The Actors Theatre Intern Company is a group of emerging professionals entrusted with key positions of responsibility in the theatre. Over the course of their intensive season-long residencies, they are involved in both short and long-term projects for their respective departments, the Brown-Forman Series, and the Humana Festival of New American Plays. They hone their skills through direct collaboration with department managers and staff and are the creative and administrative force behind Apprentice/Intern Company projects. A vital part of this nationally recognized theatre, the Intern Company is the next generation of theatre professionals.
Fees & Applications
Internships are available as full-season or part-season contracts, at the discretion of the department. Interns are selected by application and interview with department managers. It is possible to arrange course credit with the intern’s academic institution.
Actors Theatre does not charge tuition or fees for intern company membership. A grant of $5000 is awarded to each full-season intern to help defray the cost of living. We also provide each intern with help finding low-cost housing and securing student loan deferral for the season. Interns are responsible for all costs associated with living in Louisville for the duration of the internship.
