We are still accepting applications for Cal Shakes’ Professional Immersion Program from applicants with local housing. The deadline for submission is March 20, 2014.
The internship program at Cal Shakes is designed to train individuals who already possess experience in their desired fields. Working closely with staff supervisors, interns gain practical experience in a supportive learning environment. Cal Shakes’ Professional Immersion Program provides interns with a strong foundation for a career in arts education, management, or production.
Interns receive on-the-job training and instruction in their department. Interns will shadow their supervisors in their day-to-day activities: assisting with projects, participating in meetings, and possibly working on independent projects. Participants in PIP are integrated into the Cal Shakes staff, allowing them to make contacts in all departments. Adjustments will be made to the structure of a specific internship based on the participant’s skill level and personal goals.
Areas of Concentration
Scenic Construction/Technical Direction
Wigs and Makeup
Arts Education Administration
Artistic Learning (Summer Shakespeare Conservatory)
The training component of our internships supplements the education an intern receives through their academic program. Interns participate in professional growth seminars, which provide them with additional resources for their careers as artists and administrators. Interns have the opportunity to engage with other departments in order to understand the process of running a non-profit regional theater.
