Internship Opportunity 2019: TheatreSquared

Looking for a summer internship? This might be the opportunity for you!

TheatreSquared is one of the nation’s fastest-growing theatre companies, with a reputation for producing work of the highest standard and, as a playwright-led company, for cultivating the development of new plays for the American stage. The company’s new, 50,000 square-foot, two-venue facility is currently under construction and scheduled for completion in 2019 (ournextstage.org).

Located in progressive downtown Fayetteville, Arkansas (Top Five Best Places to Live in the U.S., 2017 U.S. News & World Report), the theatre is at the hub of a region that recently surpassed the half-million population mark and is consistently ranked top in the nation for its mix of an affordable cost of living and high quality of life.

TheatreSquared’s professional internships are designed for university students and early-career professionals. Apprentices and interns work under the direction of artistic staff and guest artists, receiving in-depth practical training and hands-on work experience at a professional theatre as well as making connections with respected artists and members of the field.

All positions are hands-on, with each student having real responsibilities within their focus area. Students will receive a small stipend to offset incidental expenses, and will also have the opportunity to receive college credit.

Interested candidates should apply by completing the application form and submitting a cover letter to morgan@theatre2.org at which time an interview or a portfolio review may be scheduled.
