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 (August through April), 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.

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. It is possible to arrange course credit with the intern’s academic institution.


Summer Internship Opportunities 

A small number of unpaid summer internships are available in Company Management/Hospitality, Development, Education, and Marketing. It is possible to arrange course credit with the summer intern’s academic institution. To be considered for a summer internship in any of these areas, please email a cover letter, resume, and writing sample (for Education only) to ai@actorstheatre.org.
