The Alliance Theatre’s Internship Program offers a rich and challenging experience for qualified college students and recent graduates who are actively pursuing careers in professional theatre. Intended to serve as a bridge between one’s collegiate and professional lives, Alliance Internships provide hands-on experiences in the day-to-day workings of a professional theatre. Interns have the opportunity to refine their practical and critical thinking skills through close interaction with Alliance staff and artists. Alliance internships require that each intern be mature, self-reliant, articulate, able to work effectively in a highly collaborative environment, and able to demonstrate competence in his or her specific area of interest.
Modest stipends are available for some positions; however, most internships are unpaid. Academic credit is awarded at the discretion of the intern’s college or university. The Alliance Theatre does not provide housing or housing stipends. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age. Alliance Theatre is an equal opportunity employer.
The Alliance Theatre Literary Internship is a 20-30 hour a week unpaid commitment for the entire season (September 1 through May 30). The Literary Intern works closely with the Director of New Projects, reading and copying scripts, managing research, doing some writing, designing lobby boards, leading pre- and post-show discussions, and working closely with the administration of the Alliance/Kendeda National Graduate Playwright Competition. This is a resume builder for people interested in dramaturgy and/or a terrific learning experience for those applying to graduate school in playwriting. Undergraduates in the Atlanta area who can receive class credit or recent graduates on fellowships are strongly encouraged to apply. Applicants must have excellent public speaking, research and writing skills, and strong computer and organization skills. Knowledge of contemporary American playwriting a plus. Must be self starters able to pursue tasks independently.
Applicants looking for graduate credit for internships for smaller periods or project specific experiences also encouraged to apply.
We will be accepting applications for this internship beginning in early 2017.
